“Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.”
Marty McConnell

“who did I think we were.
who did I think
I could make you.

this is the oldest mistake,
to confuse wanting
with magic. silence is the undoing
of every spell, and we are experts
in the unsaid. even now, I forget
to put us in past tense. as if
the air in this city were the same.
as if love is anything like its speaking.”
Marty McConnell Emily Kagan Trenchard
