Lawnmower & Other Expletives

Lawnmower & Other Expletives
Illustration by Alessandro Gottardo

This is the first evening. After I’ve moved in my boxes and lumpy futon mattress into the empty room separated by a thin wall from your bedroom, we share a cigarette on the front porch. You’re cradling your chin with the palm of your hand, looking at me. I’m looking back at you. We’re both smiling. “I’m really excited,” you say. “I think this is going to be good.”
