Speak slowly so I can understand you. Speak softly because I like the sound of your voice. Suck the air out of my lungs. Whisper your secrets into my hands. Let me hold them between my fingers. Promise me. Wrap me up and fold my eyelids closed. Be here because you want to be. Be here when you need me. Touch your toes to mine. Let me steal your warmth. Keep this silence as still as you can. Surrender your heartbeat. Would you talk to my plants for me? Would you care for them and watch them grow? Did you know that my glass body is not a slow moving liquid, but an amorphous solid? It shatters.
