“Understand that the only possession of any value is life” Andre Gide My lover is a dream bear that holds my failures inside its chest like a dead secret. At night, he vocalises in his sleep, uttering, at whim, a loud sound like a clearing of his throat; whereas by day, lovingly dear, he is completely silent. My lover is a dream bear who is fat but neat as a prize, holding my hands like a dancer who spins like he knows every single room.
