I’ve been super gluing
valentines to my inner thighs
feigning true love’s permanence
because after all these
forced euphoric dreams
it seems my heart
has forgotten all our safe words
He has six poems in Electric Cereal.
Love this one.
Richard Sachs is a hell of a guy and has an amazing history. It’s been an honor to see his bikes dominate every cross season. It’s even cooler to see some of his bikes in colors other than red(!), paired with a history filled out in scraps of paper, hand written notes, one off ‘RS’ metal details, and video interviews on display tonight at the Rapha Cycle Club here in New York.
If you’re in New York, please come out to Rapha and check out a history of Richard and his amazing work. Nothing but a learning experience and a second handed lesson in consistency and originality. Keep it up Richard, you’re still raising the bar for all of us! (at Rapha Cycle Club)
Such nice bikes!
I needed to repost this somewhere because I recently had an argument that destroyed a relationship about this very same thing. Change the she’s to he’s, same sentiment. But more understanding is needed on “she.”
Say what you want about how shallow of a relationship it must’ve been, but it’s still a reminder that we all have pasts that have hurt and scarred us. We all have things we wish we could move past. And yes while you are trying to be compassionate and understanding while it’s hard for you, that person is trying to do the same. Just at this particular instance, it may be harder for them to let go.
"If she flinches when you put your arm around her, you’re invading her personal space and you should back off. If she questions you, you should answer her instead of finding ways to question her legitimacy… She does not owe you anything, get over it."
