i like to save things. not important things like whales or what people is left or the environment. silly things. porcelain bells, the kind you get at souvenir shops. cookie cutters you'll never
use, because who needs a cookie in the shape of a foot? ribbons for my hair. love letters. of all the things i save, i guess you could say my love letters are my most prized possession and
obsession. i keep my letters in a teal hatbox my dad bought me from a vintage demihuman store downtown. they arent love letters that someone else wrote for me; i dont have any of those. these are
ones ive written. theres one for every monster ive loved, six in all. when i write, i hold nothing back. i write like he'll never read it. because he never will. every secret thought, every careful
observation, everything ive saved up inside me, i put it all in the letter. when im done, i seal it, i address it, and then i put it in my teal hatbox. theyre not love letters in the strictest
sense of the word. my letters are for when i dont want to be in love anymore. theyre for goodbye. because after i write my letter, im no longer consumed by my all consuming love. i can eat my
ration and not wonder if he likes fruits over meats too; i can sing along to love songs and not be singing them to him. if love is like a possession, maybe my letters are like my exorcisms. my
letters set me free. or at least theyre supposed to.
