>Three-ish years, on beauty
April 7, 2010 § Leave a comment
Three years ago, we went out on our first date. Joe picked me up from work. I handed him a piece of chocolate cake that someone had made for my birthday. He didn’t ask about why I gave him cake; he just started wolfing it down. We went to Cafe Habana in Soho where I nervously grilled him about his life story. I only knew fragments from our mutual friend. Then Joe and I had drinks at La Palapa and went to IFC to see a screening of Killer of Sheep. I remember that Joe described the movie as beautiful and I liked that he was so comfortable using that word.
I love you, Joseph. You help me see beauty.
You are beautiful.
