That’s when I knew

When we were just bored, nosy roommates,

fast becoming friends, i had you defend your love interest

You said, “Well, she’s sort of crazy, and yeah, maybe an alcoholic,

but I’m really boring, so I guess I kind of like that.”

I didn’t say anything. I know now, as I knew then,

that my most attractive quality is my tendency

to detach my skull from my brain and scream out

wildly. Me, I like stability. That was the first flag waving

red or white, i didnt know yet, just that this would turn out to be

a long lasting love interest, or at least, a dangerous connection

And I wanted to put it off until I decided whether

to renew the lease-or at least until I paid rent.
