morning really is the best time. i wake realizing the softness and warmth of my own skin. i wake wishing fingers in the bend of my knee and the fold of my breast. there are times i forget, especially in the morning. im most uncontrollable then, unable to distinguish between mind and body. im most human at 8am.
the geography of a woman.
i woke up this morning and wanted to know more.

“so whats going on there? the two of you hooking up?” “no.” i shake my head. “no.” “really? the last time she was here, it seemed like you were.” “yeah, but we werent.” “and would you tell me if you were?” “no. probably not.” “no. of course you wouldnt.”
thing 2: remember that time you jumped on my bed and i was piggy back?
thing 1: no... how drunk was i?

thing2: did you just call my thought process "intensely dramatic over analysis"?

thing2: i understood your "tone". perfectly actually. it was patronizing. and maybe you didnt mean it that way, but if i tell you there's a problem dont tell me im just being dramatic. its the same thing as ignoring me.
thing1: I wasn’t being patronizing. Like I would ever do that to someone I cared about. Now I’M angry.
