PC: Lexi Jude
My lungs commit atrocities on a full stomach and I taste it. I taste you. Sometimes we are sweet headache and ungentle. Sometimes we forget. I catch my reflection in your piano teeth. I wish for the ability to navigate myself around the rim of a glass, taking the form of an anglerfish. I wish to die somewhere lovey-dovey. It looks like daffodils when I laugh. When we spoon under blurry and golden. I am happy. I swear.
