Dear Basketball Boyfriend,

DO YOU KNOW when you can’t recall the details of a (usually

fleeting) event or interaction that you were definitely a part of  

or definitely witnessed

? ? ?

but the outline but the ghost but the over all impression left

is intriguing and feels desirable

and you feel as if you ghost were a part of something interesting

something desirable

? ? ?

AND THEN OH YEAH (you remember)

just shortly after becoming intrigued and a ghost

you are disappointed by the mundanity of such details

such crystallized impressions

the limbo of forgetting is what it’s like to be someone else

that is what it’s like to be someone else



Someone Else
