The Little Death

midsummer day
googling
my ex-girlfriend

Midsummer eve: the moment I'm inside her, my new partner cries out, "Viens à moi, chéri! Viens à moi! Ah, tu es arrivé!" The ceiling fan makes a rhythmic hum while spinning at full speed.

we sleep back to back
a shooting star
across the window


Author’s Note: A slang translation of the French is: "Home, baby! Home, baby! Yes, you've come home!"
