Rambled Photographs

I take photos.
I write stuff.
I am awkwardly awesome.

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.

I’ve never known stained windows
on Sunday mornings.
I imagine glowing golds and purples across well-dressed laps,
but I prefer them highlighting my plate
and reflecting off Friday night silverware.

Even if I don’t know you
for more than 
    shuffled card games
    and macadamia decorated vanilla sundaes,
you’ve left these remnants of your creativity.

In blocks of wood and palm fronds, 
you carved out images 
I can only try to smooth out
in the grain of carefully placed syllables.

When you unstitch my heart
in my greyest post-date,
a pocket of sand will settle
in the deepest cavity,
salty and golden 
like California summer.

Some days I fall apart
and I’m not sure if I’m regressing
into childhood cravings
of peanut butter and jelly
and VHS tapes rewound to Disney previews.

I’ve grown reckless,
   premeditating paycheck expenses
   and signing my name over - rope 
   plunges from bridges
   and 19 hour flights in window seat views.

Because I’d rather make things by hand.

We knew rainy day mugs of Twining tea
and marathons of music videos we couldn’t stand
would fade into has-beens and remember-when’s

And here they resurface
in desperate grasps.

We tunneled out of ourselves
and fanned out beneath umbrellas,
purchasing Sainsbury pasts and toilet paper
as if we could finally consider ourselves

Only now
we blink back mismatched living spaces
and coin-heavy pockets
to retreat to secluded bedrooms.



haha this is painfully accurate but a lot of my top favorite life moments happened within these 10 days in Europe. MORE CONTIKI!
