More about Marianne Morris»


from You are the nasty sty over which I wish to honey

Ah the urgency / particularity

of sexual madness as in our man on the street

at the bus

stop catching an eye & pumping up and down his

coat excitedly so excited

as to forget that the MAIN THING is to get yr

dick out on time ie

before the bus blows away. I don’t know if he

made it in time I had to look away laughing

because I was on the top deck, out of sight thinking

how I used to think I understood how society works

how no one in their right mind reads the Telegraph

but how those thoughts made me so unhappy, &

does a daytime date come over more nonchalant than

a later one, well yes but there’s the terrific possibility

you’ll spend all day and then the night together as well

forging intimacy where previously there was hard
