losing my virginity

where I’m from saturdays are for moving the pile of logs from one side of the house to the other side of the house and sundays are for staring at geraniums and wondering if you will be able to revive them or if it would just be easier to throw them away and forget about it until next season

but one saturday i took a train to roosevelt island to have sex with a boy I had never met “I’m a Russian Jew,” he said. after he came he offered me some lettuce from the fridge and said sorry he didn’t have something better to eat he swiped me into the subway station and waved goodbye i cried the whole way down the f line before I went into penn station i bought a shirt from h&m that showed off my midriff but I never wore it
