Lawnmower & Other Expletives

Lawnmower & Other Expletives
Illustration by Alessandro Gottardo

This was the first evening. After I’d moved in my boxes and lumpy futon mattress into the empty room separated by a thin wall from your bedroom, we sat together in the living room, or rather I sat in the large armchair and you lounged across the couch, cradling your chin with the palm of your hand, looking at me. I was looking back at you. We were both smiling. “I’m really excited,” you said. “I think this is going to be good.”
