When was the last time that you saw a morning
When was the last time that I saw your face
Smiling awake like it was in the old days
Maybe you’re dreaming of then
Congratulations to MacArthur fellow Alison Bechdel! Here is our 2012 interview.
What I know so far
I like “A Little Lost” because it’s all about kissing. I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I can’t stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because there’s no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you can’t stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I can’t get anything done because I’m so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But it’s absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.
