dreaming about Adrian or Peanut

Heart in the sand, Esquimalt Lagoon, Victoria, British Columbia (Miranda Hernandez)

I see her when I close my eyes. I see her as a child and all grown up, and I think about the ways that I didn’t see you. When I dreamt of you, you were always an adult looking out of a child’s body.

I don’t think I ever told you, but I used to dream about you, before you were real. It seems silly, but you always “felt” like a boy.
