But you and Leslie like to hold hands and jump off of cliffs together into the great unknown. You two have a good relationship. I don’t personally know what that’s like, but I am given to understand it means you’re gonna land on your feet.

he stays in the basement
for hours at a time,
abusing his eyes
with the white glare
of an ipad,
abusing his lungs
with clouds of black
secondhand smoke
has become
my oxygen
