Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

‘The Big Book of Orgasms’

and the caption

“I won’t finish this
until you do”

There should be more humor in the world. Love and its ilk are better viewed as comedy than tragedy, no matter who doesn’t live past the curtain. Romance is insanity, the effervescence in the wine that tickles your nose and makes you belch, but has nothing to do with how drunk you get. It’s stage magic, practiced illusion. But I have woken up sticky after having been written on with ice cream toppings in my sleep, and found a photo next to my pillow of swirls and a cosmic movement of suns, stars and moons across my torso surrounding an I LOVE YOU scrawled in chocolate syrup.

Sometimes romance is all it’s cracked up to be.
