hey girrrrrrl! tonight i want to phase through these walls that oppress us. i want to sleep in your brain and reveal my lungs. i’ll whisper into your hair and i’ll take you out swimming. and i will tell you that the pool is filled with bloody tampons. i hope you’d smile but you won’t. but i know you’ll agree to go there because you like the idea of my naked body covered in menstrual blood. i will say that i hate swimming and that my skin will dry. you won’t listen because my voice doesn’t exist inside your brain. you are asleep and you know that i’m not really there. i am somewhere else. you forget about me. and somewhere deep in the heart of africa i forget about you too.
