Draw a monster. Why is it a monster?”
I’m Dating Two People at the Same Time
They have the same name and the same laugh and the same beard. With one of them I share an intimate connection full of honesty and acceptance. He touches my stomach and my legs and my arms. I let him.
With the other I get to see the light of day, but he’s quiet and distant and aloof. He laughs still, but it doesn’t have to do with me. I am a million miles.
And I take things personally so for so long I thought it was me. I thought he took stabs and was a little rough with everyone around, but really it’s just the absence of the other that makes everything feel so sharp.
And I wonder if it will last. That surely it must. He’s the one that has had my heart and gut for years. A lifetime it seems. And yet I’m crying and stirring and falling on the list. So it must be wondered.
This idea that feminism was created in the last twenty years is ridiculous. When you think of all the women that went across the continent in covered wagons. Really. It’s ridiculous. It’s a lot of baloney. If they’d read a little history, they’d find out that women have been powerful characters all through the history of the United States.”

Anonymous asked: Hey I as just wondering how your relationship is going. You used to write more often and now you don't
I should probably write more, shouldn’t I? Things with Brooks and I are great. We’ve lost the intense mania that is the first few months of a relationship and have moved to the comfortable “lets go grocery shopping together and you go through the produce section because you know it stresses me out and I’ll pick out your snacks since I have a knack for finding the ones with the least chemicals” phase. The phase where when I rollover to kiss him at night, even in his sleep he puckers his lips to kiss me back.
Thank you for asking.
