remember to make the bathroom daisies nice for them. i hear fingerprints upstairs. ringlets of us.
remember the signal for the milk is gone. i dare you. there are no june beetles where they come
from. no red nails. no dollhouses. remember to smile. remember what i said about the daisies.
one day we will deliver flowers to ourselves. one day we will forget this ever happened.
