a valentine

we will not tire our facebook friends with so much as a picture. we will not have expensive valentine’s day dinners in fancy restaurants. we will spend the special days at hawker centres. we will eat out of takeout boxes by the riverside. we will cook our own food and lie in the grass with tupperwares. we will go on long free walks and sneak into hotels to marvel at their toilets. climb over fences and stalk random people to their apartments. free thrills. bring a guitar. we will spend special moments sweating and trekking and looking for old forgotten gems. a world war 2 bunker. the defunct railway station. i will drive that taxi. and you will speak philosophy. we will find it intensely difficult to understand one another. i will speak with my heart but your head will still be unable to read my heart and my heart will roll its eyes. you will go running. you will buy nicer shoes. i will buy you a pencil case. you will not shave your head. i will buy fruits. i will eat fruits. you will use conditioner.
