she grew up in Greensboro and does yoga. she wants to play the drums. we talked after the lights went out, with our eyes on the ceiling like we were playing sleepover.
JENNY + ALEX
I forgot to ask how they know each other. Jenny wants us to try to dream together. Alex is quiet but likes Steve Reich and got his GED. Jenny told me that without glasses it looked like I had attached small like pieces of bright orange paper to my plant instead of flowers. we wake up too hot with too many blankets and bodies.
Colin imagines things in 2D. He wants to study art and wears pajama pants with flames on them.
