I’m sorry Stefanie, but Stefanie is such
a useless name. But you have red hair, and
firemen love that. Remember when you told me
the floor was lava? All those cartwheels
really changed me. You are a great icepick
of femininity. I want your orange lipstick.
I am jealous of your mouth: how well it says
yes to pills, yes to meatsauce, yes to men
in longtoed shoes. Yes to grazing faces
on the subway. Yes, Stefanie. Just yes.
