Isn’t it incredible?
People are such awful creatures,
that our bones should be hollow and
we should appear malnourished.
But in the right light, we will
fall in love with someone’s cheekbones,
with the contour of someone’s torso,
with the sound of their frail voice rising in the dark.
How beautifully deceptive mankind is.
How terrible—we appear as stunning creations,
but someday we will kill each other.
