SOME DAYS IT ONLY TAKES THE WORLD by ANNIE MCQUADE

to swallow you whole. others it takes the voice of a former life.
a forgotten voicemail, or an old youtube video. and maybe one
day feeling my absence will leave your teeth aching, or maybe
it will make you feel more christmas lights than brush fire and guilt.
i think one day your name will fill my mouth with something other than
longing and scotch. it will taste something like comfort and blueberry muffins instead.


Annie is from a small Rhode Island town no one has ever heard of and likes to drive elsewhere as often as she can. She drinks too much coffee and likes hanging out with her brother and puppy.
