You make me feel fabulous. God damn, I’m glad you’re in my life. Everything I could say about you is like a greeting card, some trite nonsense-sounding surplus language. You amaze me. Generous, gentle, translucent, solid, convex, astute, goofy, serious, swinging, modular, irascible, reconcilable, basic, fluid, sharp, sticky, blazing, lifted, shaped, critical, alluring, delicate, strong, prickly, shaggy, squared off and sautéed. Your jaw is firm, eyes flecked, and when you let me believe my opinion matters. What more could I ask for? Complicated and simple, you enlighten and enliven my life. So for your birthday I didn’t make a cake.
