Big Window

a quick glimpse of something beautiful

2:09 a.m. IM by Janet Holmes

enjoying life as


a nobody?

actually
we’re both no bodies this way

(as in pixels & ether

"there’s 2 of us u know"

& random
disconnects)

mais oui

"imagine unconventional beauty"
u said

mais oui

(may we? we
may)

(or may not)

if i meet u f2f some day
i won’t even know it

f2f?

(french?)

dont u think thats weird

face to face
u know, in person
meeting in the flesh

(im afraid to use
my o so bad french w/u)

hard concept that

i was almost convinced
u were fictional

figment of a late-night screen

i am entirely nonfictional
(nonfigmental)
!!!!!!!

well, camouflaged then

this isn’t hiding

i’m very open with u

which is y pix is a good idea
imho

multiple !!s are assaultive

u hide yourself otherways

incredulous!!!! that’s all

for gods sake

anyway

looking at something directly
always
changes it

lets not
