dewdrop sugar

she said she thought that most geniuses were lonely. i said i thought everyone was lonely. that even the moon is lonely, and that's why it pulls on the tides


i told you that they have been running around my bedroom at times when animals and humans should be sleeping. i have been sitting next to the window all day watching the rain dowsing our flowers and herbs like an overexcited friend who wants to tell you all their news in one mouthful and watching all the little drops running eversoquickly down the glass, i think they don't know where to go so they just keep going and hope to end up somewhere better. i tried to have a long walk in the rain but instead thought better to watch the rain from the other side of glass and eat stacks and stacks of fairy bread, leaving little rainbow freckles on my lips.
