peaches: “your writing is beautiful. may i read it?”

grandie v: “it’s written in magic fairy language, peaches, so i’ll have to read it to you. it says: fairies, mermaids, and unicorns are magical.”

peaches: “we’re both so lucky that you know magic fairy language.”

”if i fall asleep with a pen in my hand, don’t remove it

— i might be writing in my dreams.

but without

the mud, tie dye, or music

just lots of good words.
