Koyaanisqatsi (dir. Godfrey Reggio)

You leave me in the morning, before sunrise. I know this because I wake up minutes later, rolling into the fading warmth beside me.

Yet again, we haven’t talked about what we’re doing together. I like to think, hoping beyond hope, that one day we’ll lock eyes and know, and neither of us will ever have to speak a word. Much less humiliating that way, and cuts down on any misunderstandings. Sometimes I think I’d be happy never speaking again, except that nobody has ever looked at me and known the things I wanted them to.

There’s a bag of coffee beans in the freezer that you brought from home two weekends ago, and I let you use my coffee grinder on the mornings when you do stay. Before you, it wasn’t really a coffee grinder. I only ever use it to make gomashio, so I think your coffee must be awfully salty. And here I thought I was doing you a favor; these days my gomashio is always a little bitter.

I drink tea standing in the kitchen in my socks, looking out the window. It faces north, or maybe south - some direction with no direct light. My kitchen will never see a sunrise or a sunset, which is alright for it. Less so for the stunted succulents lined up on the windowsill.

I keep trying to impress the scenes of my life with meaning whenever you’re gone. As though the ring from your coffee mug on the counter is a sign of something. Any advice columnist in the world would tell me that we should just have a conversation. Those columnists would underestimate how desperate I am to avoid sticking my hand down my throat and showing you what comes up.

Maybe one day we’ll get there. It’s nice to think eventually we’ll both find people we’d rather be honest with than drift away from. Until then, I’ll avoid cleaning the coffee grinder, and I’ll call it a sign.

- new chevrolet in flames

- full flower (live by the sword, die by the sword :/  )
