It is better to know less than necessary than to know more than necessary. Do not fear the lack of knowledge, but truly fear unnecessary knowledge which is acquired only to please vanity.
Your agreement with reality defines your life.

the biggest tortoise in the world
"They found the biggest tortoise in the world in South America today,”
you said, massaging the tender knot at the back of my neck
with one hand
removing your boots
with the other.
"They had to get a lorry or something to remove it, imagine that.”
I said nothing, thinking of all of the things you understand and
all of the things you don’t
like how I will love you forever but
probably from afar and
not in the way you want and
how you’ll find somebody new
to be with.
It’s only fair.
Maybe he or she will have
a tightness in the neck
a passion for useless facts
the power to stick around and
really, I miss you already.
Basically we are all looking for someone who knows who we are and will break it to us gently.
I am not a place for cowards.
Stop loving people into corners.
