  • Lets take Xanax, lay underneath soft blankets and drink ginger tea. Listen to our favorite songs over and over again until we don't know if we even like them anymore. Knit our fingers together in as many ways as we can think of until we fall asleep half holding hands. Lock the door and turn our phones off. Float in and out of consciousness without thinking about tomorrow or two seconds ahead of us or ten seconds past us. Plan out our ideal meal in five courses. Try and count how many times we blink every 60 seconds. Forget what it feels like. Laugh so hard we can't breathe. Move slowly. Try and keep up with the waves. Whoever you are.
