about

we lay on the empty platform, looking at the vague greying walls towering upward. she wouldn't lie with us, for fear of the wet snow drifting down.
"do you believe in god?"
"no." she paused. "i'm cold - watch me dance." so we watched her dance.
"tell me something true." (you were quiet).
"i love you."
"something else."
at which she paused. "i am standing on your coat," and with that she pirhouetted away past the backs of our eyelids. you told me how i was still speaking with the voice of someone i once knew, but didn't know any more. the girl was shivering, smiling uncertainly.
when it got colder still she begged to go home, and we walked the silver screened streets in our damp clothes. you told me we can't describe anything, only paint an outline around it, and hope the meaning will get across. but i still think that sometimes you're wrong, because every once in a while it feels much simpler than that.
the you is me. the white seems just what it looks like when colours move too fast, or when the reception isn't clear.

we continued walking down the street as our voices disappeared.
