lying in bed with you feels a bit like my favorite book

i understand you
better when
you speak your
language rather
than mine
your eyes go so
wide when yo say
'pourquoi? pourquoi?'
it's amazing that you
love being alive so
very much
and you can't
understand why i
often don't
you must have had
a nice childhood with
nothing weighing on
you
most of my
favorite books and
some of my favorite
movies are about
depressed anglo-saxon
women living in paris
with men they
hardly know
and yes,
i have no desire
to see
the empire state
building either

i am sitting here writing a sketch for my sketch writing class, spoofing the french, and i take a wee blog break and lo and behold, you have a fraynch le boyfriend. i totally get the wide-eyed pourquoi, pourquoi thing. they all do that. it's rather adorable. i am glad he makes you happy.
