can't do a thing with it? just shave it!. i made an off hand comment one night, something to the effect of "i just want to shave off all my hair" and nico perks up with this little smile, and said "let's do it right now" "do what?" "let's shave your head" i pretended to think it over for a few, but my mind was made up two seconds before he asked the question. it had to go. and so it did, i gathered my hair into ponytails for locks of love, and sat outside with devon in my lap, pondering the b... read moreThu, October 12, 2006 - 9:20 PM permalink - 3 comments

so much of my world is a world of wants. i suppose this is the way of the fortunate. with all wants comes the inability or unwillingness to comply. i am not cold. this is the way pregnancy is told, as a defuser of fires and a quelling of the warmth that got you pregnant in the first place. in other words, i'm fucking horny. my passion has not dissipated in the least. in fact, to the contrary, i find my body engorged with want. but want, as i said, has a way ... read more
