subject line: about a boy



three days ago i was eating chips on a bench and you sat next to me. at some point in our conversation it struck me that you were the most darling boy i had met in my life, and i wanted to know every detail of your life. you showed me pictures of your family and your dog and by the end of our conversation you had started referring to everyone by name and not title. we spent ten hours in the back row of a bus watching movies with one earbud each. it’s been a couple of days since i saw you but you’re still texting me every hour of the day.
i learned three things about you in two days.
you love straws.
you know how to make yourself laugh.
and you want to know about my day as much as i want to know about yours.
