Ex mortis ad mortem
The truth about true love stories is that they usually, if not inevitably, end in death.
But we're not a very usual couple: in our case, death was only the beginning.
She was all dressed in white, her skin pale as alabaster, her hair vibrant and unruly as naked flame, but I dared not speak to her, for she was frothing blood.
It was the Day of the Dead, and we were both covered in thick red gore, lurking amongst some half a thousand other zombies but, somehow, our eyes met only to be torn away by the mob.
We knew, however, where we could find each other and, by nightfall, we so did.

for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
