The Weather Report – March 16, 2015
Wauwatosa, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
Sunrise: 7:04 a.m.
Sunset: 7:00 p.m.
Moon Phase: Waning Crescent
You should wear: one of those free shirts they give out for races, or charities, or start-up events. You have, like, a million.
You’re going to feel: today, a lot. It is mostly bright outside and the air actually matches. You deserve it.
Some clouds during in the late afternoon. Slight chance of showers at night. Winds SW at 10 to 15 mph.
You will come to terms with the constant existence of glass on the floor and the probability that you will step in it. You will come to terms with the fact that you probably won’t eat any fireflies in your sleep tonight but hey, you can’t say you weren’t warned. You will finally admit to yourself that yes, actually, sand is the worst thing you’ve ever put in your mouth and no, this isn’t an over statement.
My hair smells like a stranger’s bed today because I didn’t allow myself to wait for the sunrise before falling asleep. I am attracted to the static ways in which hotel rooms are created and the instilled intimacy we are supposed to feel inside of them. If a placeholder bedroom can exist in an evenly balanced measure of sterility and disease, why can’t I too. Why won’t I even try.
By this time tomorrow you will have forgotten about the glass and stepped in it again.
By this time tomorrow, you will have dressed yourself without noticing the incorrect ways it’s grown.
By this time tomorrow we’ve both accepted safety in human form.
Every day that we leave the house, we find a different way back home.
You know it’s real when you both lie in bed and hold a pillow because you’re afraid to hold onto each other instead.
We silently wake up in the morning with very small movements as we take the next half hour to scroll through our phones and see what we missed during the night.
