b: me neither all the perks
z: lots of chill time
b: did your grandparents have a king-sized bed?
z: oma and opa had two untouching beds and dandy and grammasha i think had one with a little tv in front
b: satellite tv?
z: dude i think yeah
b: did you oscillate between many channels?
z: yea watched braveheart and meet me in st. louie so i guess satellite wasn’t really involved
b: did you have your snacks there?
z: dude didn’t have many snacks in that house just damn huge meals uncle would leave steaming biscuits and gravy and bacon and eggs on a plate by my face before i was up and when i was o boy
b: like on the table beside the bed?
z: wood table front of couch so badass
b: lots of blankets if a blanket isn’t heavy it’s not a pile of cool pets crushing you to sleep
z: unless it read damn cold i don’t like the blankets less it’s that one that i held out the window on the road
b: i tucked someone’s brain into a twin bed then was cry-like there’s never room for two unless you both sleep on your sides
z: you want a king bed
b: not even for the status on a king there’s parts where you have a bed to yourself and parts where there’s another there
z: that’s right parts still cool parts… unknown
b: cool parts important not imported what do you know about vibraphones?
z: i don’t know shit think it’s an electric xylophone elevator stuff
b: listen to this
b: “also known as the vibraharp or simply the vibes”
z: o fuck yea “the vibes” is cool the word vibraphone is really blessed to me
b: go on
z: the phone is time, the vibra is sex. the sound the instrument makes is really bad frasier but the word is thermal as fuck
b: i sent you autumn leaves on the vibraphone bc of birth times!
z: was reading sarki and his words he had them in him and they spilled it felt like the first time for both of us i need to check that dude on my email?
b: yeah on ur email
z: first time for both like it was his experience for me reading his words
b: like a little designed sun hour
z: yes! an airplane banner goin by it’s wicked. enjoy the short stuff
b: in vibraphone i read this hope of time not taking up too much space while also reading there a knowing of just how much space is taken up little blisters covering the bottom of a vacationer’s feet but having a good time regardless
z: that’s cool. aha! i guess that the way she goes. thinking of them as little blisters is great! or a big toe nail that’s made fun of for being so small like why would you wear sandals but it’s all good if you’re wearing sandals
b: feet breathing! i wanted to find a way to say something about the book in your hand the colors of the flowers feel like wallpaper taken from a room where you’re in love and that’s the only room you got but ya can’t live there
z: hm i think that they’re cold. and light doesn’t do much to them. and someone is sick nearby. yea i’d agree does the face feel like it’s on the wall too?
b: yeah! it feels like “fuck was i there i was really there” covet stance!
z: aw scorp lots
b: ha! coveting isn’t an evil activity
z: hell yea
b: cuz it’s about taking under yeah but it’s about safekeeping more and like careful knowing
z: yes yes! we covet friends but with friends you can tell when it’s not going to happen which is bad but helpful
b: you can tell by the sharpness and in the sentences
z: or once one has been coveted so strongly by another the coveting is mutual and indestructible
b: isn’t that the good one when the coveting is mutual?
z: that the good one if you’re one of the two
b: or no if it can’t have distance? do you mean if one person is the coveted and one is the coveteer?
z: the distance in coveting is all physical, it doesn’t really matter i think or they both kind of become both it’s about types i guess?
b: i think there has to be space where roles change depending on who needs what at the time
z: yea the egg need be held
b: does it ever!
z: before eatin or prayed to or w/e
b: but the egg gotta boil too gotta be let boil
z: met an egger yesterday who puts bands around his hens whatever for small eggs
b: oh no afraid of the large hatch
z: choke the chicken for a tighter product
b: used to be that kind i think
b: like into that dynamic well both when you do those chokeholds
z: taking stuff away or adding stuff on feels unnatural
b: it’s the worry plans
z: i think it’s cause you can see the seam whether anyone else can it is worry
good to have a great friend’s head on it so the seam can be shared
less worry more party
b: like take a pic of me eating this huge steak
z: fun not to feel guilt but can’t
b: i tend to wander into the weighty admit i need help there!
b: packed into a lil box going into the same mouth
z: if i’m lucky!
b: you’re luck
