p is for pants

one evening i showed up and told you just to take off your pants.


p is for proud

i wish i hadn’t felt too proud on the fourth of july to accept your very-last-minute invitation. it would have been nice to spend the evening together.


p is for play

i miss playing with you.


p is for passion

passion. oh yes, despite everything, there’s passion.


p is for purpose

you’ve hurt my heart, but you’ve never done it on purpose.


p is for pho

you taught me about pho.


p is for peanut

the night you finished taking a class, i brought you peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. you thought it was the greatest thing that i’d remembered your mentioning how much you like it.
