I tried to hide from you ~blending of bodies coming together to fall apart~
Fumbling on floors
I tried to tell him about the burden of being alive.
I say, “I’m the only one. I don’t speak for Māori. I barely speak for myself.”
He says, “I never expected you to.”
I say, “But you did. Your friend believes in reverse racism and you never understood me.”
He yells, “Why don’t date a maaaarey then”.
I cry. ~wishing you a warm summer with lots of beaches~
