I love you for your laughter your soft hair the morning routines I tried to adopt, that you have down to a science the way you gaze into the abyss with tender expressions the careful footsteps the blushing falseness the pretty lace and ribbons the black eyeliner and studded collars
beards and hunting and fishing flannels and strength and handsome fellers truck stops and smoking whiskey and bonfires g i joe and spiderman
but most of all batman and joker the complications of comics
gaming on friday nights with bottles of bud I love men and boys and women and girls and ladies and gentlemen
*curtsies I can care for anything with a real soul.
