A bit of a detour. I got a 1-inch papercut on my hand that got inflamed because of a pulp or wood allergy, which was likely inflamed due to exposure from paper or wood, which was then covered by two band-aids and a wrap of blue painters tape because that's what was around the office. Hours later I was in front of someone I pursued (heavily) years ago. I think he's the only person who will contradict me, who I'll let get away with it. Which is its own particular form of love.

Emphasis on Love. | Some girl in the East Village blocks past the ON AIR izakaya with Love Will Tear Us Apart sweats on. Love will Tear Us Apart in a tacky font running down her leg. Asian. Pants paired with a cargo jacket. No circle elevator¹ for us bc the building was closed. But there were the two and there's always love. | Architectures in Love¹ . Architectures of Ambivalence. | I fell in love with him years before we met. | I fell in love with him across the street from the building either of us would call home for 5 years. | I fell in love with him in a Duchampian moment: in front of a fountain, but not that kind of fountain. | The blue of his bag and the blue of the dots on his shirt. The black of his umbrella as it passed the fence out my bedroom window. | I doubt he's able to recall in the same way. | I miss him tremendously and he's asking me to love him by _ him _. By letting him _. | Mostly I think men want to be the one making the choice in the matter. If he had been the one who had years befored, we wouldn't be where we are now. | Tonight he carried the same yellow he wore the day I knew. | When I die you'll play Y_'s Mass at my funeral and the funeral won't be very long and no one will speak. | I want to be around people who know how to do one thing: Listen.

Adult or Gamer, is it time to grow up?

Being an adult and a gamer does not go hand-in-hand. I just moved out on my own and this total independence has taught me the value of my free time; meaning I now have no free time. 673 more words
