Brief Histories

/ /

Dan was half my size. We shared an office. I loved him. Now he lives in Castlemaine.

Shane and I watched movies on a Wednesday. He cried a lot at Brooklyn. Then he left.

Jonathan got married really quickly. He didn’t want me coming to the wedding.

Shelly cooked. We smoked her cigarettes. She doused the pack with water in the morning.

Mon lived on a farm and drove a manual. We spent the summer arguing in bed.

Ed and I spent twenty years pretending before he pushed me up against a wall.

I’m not sure why I’m telling you all this. I guess I hope it saves us both some time.
