perfect boyfriend.

boys who live in dirty quarters.

paper cuts and unrequited love. bottle caps and lipstick pillow smears. bruises and magazine tear outs. breathless or anxious. inky rings around your eyes and bleeding lips. account withdrawn, the perfect party dress. no shirt, your shit. headphones and noise from the roof. cold bodies warm sheets. lungs feel heavy and tar. dust under the bed. late night fridge light. black clothes white winter. pack bags. unpack. fold. repeat. open door. lock door. unlock repeat. only believe what you've been told. it's safer. tambourine shakes. nicotine wake. i like that. bisou bisou bisou bisou.
