Never the less, the two of us have already agreed that I should definitely make an appearance around day 25. We’ll probably start feeling a bit irritable at that point. I like that I can speak confidently on his behalf, mainly because we’re the exact same person in lots of ways.

The bass playing luthier is quite the muse. And he seems smitten with my designer frames widely observing his ways in anticipation of the next poem or story that will drip from my fingernails. When I say, “my glasses are from Italy,” he laughs and says, “oh does that mean their better?”

In any event, I’m sure I’ll be writing death and despair poetry in a few days once the emptiness makes space in my heart where I’ve kept the most beautiful man tightly wrapped the past month…
