风流盛唐

Silence:

翻到一张被自己当成手机背景很久的Kaylor图,霉霉那个眼神,突然觉得有点窝心。

虽然抖森真的很好,散发荷尔蒙又不失优雅。

美国诗人理查德·布兰科为庆祝马萨诸塞州同性婚姻合法化十周年创作了一首诗,记得那时候网上还配了一个

视频,虽然真的很感动,但却想说'什么时候大家不再消费L、G、B、T,只把这当成像生活中露水一样自然

的存在,就说明我们真的可以了'。

《直到我们可以》

it that ROOM where we found for the first time our eyes

Leaving us alone

As if we stood the last two in the world left capable of love
