You get the pliers from the tool drawer to use as a roach clip,
Then accidentally put the selenite back into the tool drawer instead of said pliers.
Bruises feel a lot more real than love. They are always there, tender and visible.
It started out with too much to drink and progressed
to my head on your belly, listening to the ocean inside,
the jellyfish swishing their clear tentacles through your ears,
and ended with our tongues meeting like nervous strangers.”
