I’m not a super lovey person and hate shit like It Gets Better and Love, Simon but I saw this interaction yesterday that made my heart explode and I had to share.
Two boys, walking. A green t-shirt and khaki pants on a skateboard. A red collared shirt and grey pants on a scooter.
Green t-shirt reaches for red collared shirt’s ass. Pat pat. They roll by each other.
They keep rolling.
Green t-shirt reaches for red collared shirt’s ass. Pat pat.
Green t-shirt looks to red collared shirt, his amber beard scrunching into his shoulder. He winks. He licks his lips.
Red collared shirt looks back at him and looks down and looks back at him. He scoots along in parallel. He shakes his head.
Green t-shirt leans over. Red collared shirt looks back. They kiss. Green t-shirt smiles and red collared shirt smiles and they keep moving, in parallel, smiling still and leaning their heads to the sun, rolling them around, looking back and forth at each other as if only they exist.
