  2. “Jellyfish” - Andrea Gibson

    My body is a mason jar
    Transparent as a jellyfish
    I wish for a heart you can see straight through
    For a voice that glows in the dark
    And a few really good friends to skip moon rocks to

  3. window


    If everything is a window, if the wound is a window, if heartbreak is a window, if grief is a window, if the storm is a window, if illness is a window, if loss is a window, you will say you live in a house made entirely of glass, you will say the moon is so close you can catch its reflection on your silver spoon, you will say your spoon is a silver spoon, you will feed yourself light, you will be hungry for nothing but people whose hearts will never close the blinds.

  7. It’s not that I thought I’d grow up to be a man; I just never thought that I’d grow up to be a woman either.


    Dear Andrea Gibson,

    I feel you.

  8. "If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time. Love that. So if you have somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety, like myself, and if you happen to be a calm person, you could come up and hug me heart to heart and my heart hopefully would slow to yours. And I just love that idea. Or maybe yours would speed up to mine. But either way, we’ll be there together."

    Lines that I liked:

    “I can guarantee a haircut will never tell you anything someone’s gender, who they love, or how they fuck.”

    “but tomorrow when I pull the word faggot from the shot gun of a frat boy’s throat
    and then send it in a love letter to my love so she can scratch it down my back
    please believe I am taking back every bible belt that ever cracked against my spine.”
