Longing for that feeling, the world is on your side.
Like the long months
Until you’re finally unpacked
It’s time to move again.
Mercury is in retrograde (but when is she not)
let her be;
let the forces shift and shape me.
Straining to keep the moment alive;
the child in my eye.
Only when there is you and I.
“I’m queer,” he says, simply. “I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that’s what you’re supposed to be looking for. Then [when] we find what we think is love — even if it is love — we do not yet have the tools. I do feel that it’s possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible — which is fine. I’m super down with being irresponsible. I’m just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That’s where I’m at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question.”
— Ezra Miller (2012 interview)
An outer element often absorbs an individual in the moment. That individual might act as an unknown stranger, but maybe that is their truest self.
To stumble upon incredible sights at the peaks of giant mountains. Inhale the sweet and spicy aromas filling street corners. Step by step, as the thin souls crumble under a weight of memories. Congealing oils under the shallow bones and bruises. Encountering dreamy eyes. Passing those who may understand or may not understand. Never ending rides with aching necks and sleepy snapshots of distant places yet to discover. Out of the corner of the eye, a glimpse of smirking lips reveals a fluttering heart that appears only on occasion. Infectious giggles. A toast to all those you meet along the way. A feeling of feeling full to carry with you through dreary hours. Learning, always learning.
