The Wardrobe’s Best Dressed: The Easy Body by Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta

OK, let’s take a
poll:

how many of us
grew up praying for

the end of the world? Is it
so bad to desire

the end of the world?

Transcribing a codex for
the dissolution of self

as I sit on your
face, calling for the

end of the world.

Oh, yes.
I see.

How you retreat from
my love into the safety

of myth.
