A one hundred year old woman reflects on her deceased husband.
todo me lleva a ti
como si todo lo que existe
aromas, luz, metales,
fueran pequeños barcos que navegan
hacia las islas tuyas que me aguardan
-Pablo Neruda, Si tú me olvidas

From “Knowledge” by Louise Bogan:Trees make a long shadow And a light sound
I tried talking to a boy on tinder and ended up telling him about the Montreal Massacre
whatever its a good story because this guy shot up a room of female engineers and for like a decade feminist writers and reporters refused to use his name so he didn’t get famous
and if you don’t think that’s the coolest thing I don’t want to date you
I had my boyfriend who smokes use matches for a few days instead of a lighter and record the date and time and whatever he was thinking about while smoking.
It’s funny that he quit smoking a few weeks after this project.
