Who taught me to suck in my stomach,
or my cheeks?
Who told me to stand with my legs apart
and my hips thrust back
to create the illusion of a gap
between my thighs?
Who made me believe that the most beautiful part of me
is my negative space?

“‘Why the fuck not me?’ should be your motto.”
“ I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt. ”
'Well, it's about one person who talks and one who doesn't, and they compare hands and get all mingled up in one another.”

“ Well, I write in the book that when you improvise, there’s this idea that you have to say yes. And as I’ve gotten a little older, I’ve added please to the end, because I realized when you say yes to things, it means you’re not doing them alone. You’re usually asking for help and wisdom and collaboration from someone else. ”
