La Belle Dame Sans L'AmourLa Belle Dame Sans L'Amour
She lays languid, a mermaid exiled
violently from the reflection of Central Park.
A nosegay unpolished, her pallid limbs are
heavy as the charms of imps
who dance in forests of legs

If we could—plan—our lives would be much different. I think. It’s hard to say because this is how we’ve always been.
Our very togetherness is a result of impulse. I’m almost certain that the amount of time it took us to decide to move in together was significantly shorter than the amount of time it took us to remember each other’s names.
