Prone To Suggestion, Too Stubborn To Agree
He is an oddity that would hold a door for me. A sheet stained with ink not blood and sweat. An annual I’ll read for the articles. Or he’ll be another what-of-it gesture made with my hands, lacking sincerity. I don’t know what to say anymore. If I was sixteen I would just drink, cross a line I don’t care for, let a hand rest on his knee. If I was talented I could be eloquent and describe every...

When I was eighteen a boy painted a canvas for me, of a map, delivered it to the record store where I worked. I noticed then there were words in white you couldn’t see at first glance but shimmied through in odd light. They were synonymous with want and anguish. When I was eighteen I recognised the plague and romance in this. I hung it on my wall, still hang it on my wall. Did nothing else....
Sincere & Reasonable
I do imagine you with her, this with a kernel of truth. The aching insides of an apricot cutting my palm up. Listening to terrible music and aiming to find perfection where there is none in each others faces. I don’t understand. She is conceited and boring. Happy with her lot. And isn’t that pathetic. Maybe I’ll take all the metal out of my face and mouth, wear pink or red....
I’d say opposites attract because most people hate themselves on some level.

Moving is the least fun a girl can have with her clothes on. The new place was needed, though I didn’t suspect how much. The curtains are red and in the morning my room glows amber. I have nothing much to say, just got back from junk-food and beach-watching with my babes, chuckling in the backseat and musing over summer-conquests. Whore-season I said. Everyone is bringing out the best in...
The Notwist - Alphabet
I am alone and thinking about how stupid my legs look in these jeans. I am thinking about pro-life campaigns. I am thinking about how warm it is when I enter my house. I am thinking about my new room with the peeling paint and faulty lights, dingy candelabra. I am thinking about someone else other than myself. I am thinking about kissing someone on a busy street at eleven pm and how old my clothes...
Have You Ever Written An Essay You Received High...
I’ve been called in to uni to sit a practice exam to test my literacy and numeracy as part of my special admission application (for fucks sake) and I haven’t written a serious essay in four years. I don’t mind what it’s about, if you have anything you think would help, please do send it in. In the coming weeks, if I get in, I’m going to need all the help I can get....
You Could Just Call Me
Discussing dinner parties as I knead dough with my elbows (they are clean like the rest of me). Someone is bringing a lemon meringue pie for dessert. That Is Such A Niche Dessert, I Think. It’s rude. Citrus and eggs are not universally liked. Chocolate covered strawberries are something everyone likes the idea of. I would make them. That way if you hate food it’s no big deal because there’s like...

I Have Nothing To Do All Day
Because it’s that time of year again (He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake), I’m sending out Christmas cards as I have done the last couple of years. If you would like a card and a short piece influenced by your name, send your name and address to email@example.com or my Ask box (I won’t disclose your details to anyone else), wherever you are...

The New - Interpol
Write about one of the most difficult decisions you have made in your life: Ah, you see, I have had no such thing. The easy life I have lived without haste is embarrassing to document. I could say leaving high school, but that was easy. I could say moving home, but that was out of my control. I could say staying here. I could say staying here. I was offered a way out, a good friend in Melbourne...
The Moon During The Day
It’s possible this has already been said here. Packing is uncomfortable and time consuming. I keep on stopping to wander through old workbooks. March 2011 Hope in threads, around pretty necks, attached in lengths to this ceiling. All those halogens with layers of triangles disguising them. Before, you said twenty-two like it was a threat And I couldn’t have known what that meant But now I...

Meeting & Marrying
I ordered a salad and an amaretto over ice at lunchtime so I could watch the suits file in and out. Meet the eyes of someone over the rim of my glass in a completely lewd manner. That appeals. They don’t do all that much. They are grandiose with flickers of normality. Most have a confidence that reeks of narrow-mindedness but occasionally they make a bad joke and the table falls quiet. I...

Is it that time of morning again? This three AM recognition of good intentions with offensive destinations. Single out the fool beneath my hellish layers. When was is that I chose to ridicule the smear of pride I sense I do have, somewhere. Lost, I suppose. $42.10 cab fare, two pairs of complicated feet and His confusion, he follows me as I escape, stare straight ahead into a night that has no...

I Would Love The Ending Too
When I slipped on cobblestones and that couple stopped and asked if I was OK, looked at me with stretched eyes that screamed Oh God She’s Drunk By Herself At Six Thirty PM, I really did wonder if everything does happen for a reason. Some statements are meant to be said without contemplation or any brand of belief. I did not burn half my hand this morning for a reason. I had a sudden burst of...
Moving into a new place next week. It’s a dive with an overgrown backyard, a huge bedroom window and red curtains, faulty electricity. My kind of place really. I say that with a smile. It’s huge and light and close to things. I’ll have $49 a week for general things including food so I suppose I’ll drink less and accept more invitations to dinner. Can somebody please...

If someone is going to break your heart, at least make it someone who genuinely cares about you.
Anonymous asked: You have really soft skin what do you use?
I do love you. I do love you. I only point out the rain so you can appreciate the sun in days. I do love you but all my nails are bitten from lessened discipline, I do love you. But you draw out the crazy in me. And I do love you, the swell of your neck against my jaw and I do love you, your involved gaze and yes, yes I do love you and I’m sorry I forgot to say that I do, I do love you.
