To Heartbreak Hotel

This piece is about illuminating the various rooms inside of us, what kinds of words might be in those rooms, who we might be inside of them : “As this body writes it will occasionally go into the other room to masturbate. To think about sexy or strange things. To feel intense, then dull.”
