Flowers for anniversaries. A sketchbook of failed relationships on display in the MOMA. I want a change of seasons. Person to person shirking. Why wasn’t it me? Why does it matter? A shift in the personal pronouns. Him versus I. Versus me. Versus everything I guessed about my life.
Don’t wait. Why do we wait for arrivals and departures to display our anxieties? Pictures that make me feel bad about my hips. The unbearable desire of being. Choosing the sky above for guessing at pictures of zoo animals. We’re all wishes longing to break out of the cage.
Finding the one person who you want to spend every waking moment with. Man to Man. Finding the one person who you miss, even when they’re next to you in bed. Longing to be wanted. Aching for being. Aching for meaning. When meaning validates you.
