My boyfriend gave me a key to his house. I know, how epic, the trust he must have had. We plan a Friday night in, pizza, bourbon, and movies, the kind of ordinary, indulgent lazy evening that depending on my mood later would either be used as evidence of our complete harmony, or that this relationship was syphoning my youth. Class ends early for me, he’s stuck in traffic, and I’m...
“You think you are an iconoclast, but you’re not. You just move, or replace what you cannot have. If you fail at something you retreat into something else. Nothing changes you. How many women did you have? I left you because I knew I could never change you.

I wake up a sunrise now, that certainly isn’t normal. Over the last week or so I’ve realized that I’ve stopped feeling a sense of dread whenever someone turns to say something to me. Electricity has been working for months now. ...
We can only touch people standing at most two to three feel away from us, the reach of an arm, extending to the longest fingertip. Smell those at ten feet away, hear them across a few yards if they scream. I’m young and my sight is strong, I could see a person across a field. I can taste a person only when they’re pressed against me. Our senses evolved as a mechanism of survival,...
