Girl is the warmest colour

January 16, 2020

two girls kissing in Paris, ignoring the politics in this
a film about two girls who are not depressed because they are gay
a film about two girls who are not dead because they are gay
they give each other flowers
there is no grave in this
no scene in which the heartbroken walk back down the street, away from the camera
the end is not elegy
the end is not blue
running cornflower
fistfuls of cerulean
cold sky
they know how to love each other
there is no choreographed sex
no brief infinite tenderness
they learn how to use their mouths
a folding of soft
no crash
no broken windshield bodies
no tears
just imagine: a movie about two girls where neither of them have to cry
