  • there was a medical conference.
    and you kept ditching the lectures.
    you'd sign in, in the morning
    then escape
    we rode buses to the ends of their lines.
    and i wandered the streets, making friends with strangers
    balancing carefully on the edge of the curb
    i felt... curious.
    and someone had told me to go see all these things.
    but really i just wanted to go back
    to the conference
    and look at slides
    of broken human insides
    with you.
