*Stand across from someone and recite this to each other one at a time

I want this to bring us together. Let’s hold hands, roast onions + take outdoor showers.
I want us to dream big + explore the grey.
I want transformation, complexity + more block parties.
I want us to use flannel sheets for picnic blankets + hold on tight.
I want more phone calls home, politics + BBQs.
I want to make room for you, but not forget me.
I want to change positions + understand your story.
