quick. I’m thinking of a number. I wouldn’t usually ask
but please. Ben. Can I borrow your wet trousers.
No reason. I’m not one of those girls who falls asleep
on other peoples laundry, I just like watching you buy milk
you drunken goon. And you still haven’t told me
who’s the biggest bathroom hog in your family? I like
making people do what I say. repeat three times fast:
cancel ticket please refund cancel ticket peas reflub can
you ticket place reefer. I like pot. I like tricking you into talking
about superheroes. I don’t think it’s true that all British people
pronounce it “suburus” Ben. Its just you. The number was one.
I’m sitting down. I’m reading your book so I can’t catch you
biting an imaginary toothpick and not looking at me nonstop
like a beautiful loon. Oh, I don’t know why one.
Just one. Thanks for the salmon Ben. It was so awful.
Nobody should ever buy salmon at Kings Cross
but thanks for the salmon Ben. Thank you so much!
I tell you holding your wrist like a small warm device
and we are on the train already
