i wrote this for the insanely sexy genius who kept almost killing me or sending me to the ER so nonchalantly that it was always amazing to recognize his brutality: he was perfectly aware of his own strength.
he was perfectly built and quite literally four feet from shoulder to shoulder; his ams were easily eighteen inches around: he had the perfect tiny amount of fat so nothing veined or cracked mussels. i found him perversely attractive.
he made me laugh. i loved every las twisted drop of gallows humor--

Galactic Pollution: Soho at Twilight
the billboards along Canal could poke an eye out
with how big they say to love.

too burdened to glance above.
