heart that flutters like a bird trapped in the rib cage and never sleeps.

learning how to say no in its thousand permutations.

i want to say yes, but first i have to learn how to no.

i have said no like a two-year-old who has just discovered refusal, no no no no!!!

now i learn its softer shapes, the no that says do not wait, but maybe later? and other careful elocutions that require letters.

i just want to go slow right now, so slow that it is like molasses (a cold day, it is winter).

slow slow slow

no no no

until some time in summer

yes yes yes.
