If I Had an Eye Patch, I’d Give You My Eye — [1]

Breath pushed against the porthole, they sought to give a geographical location for desire. The fog disappeared as soon as some person’s name was written; [2] their fingers, on this they agreed, felt like toothpaste afterwards. 4 a.m. is heartbeart and sleepwalking.

[7 Living is scientifically known as a burning process.
