Sometimes We Try Sometimes we try not to think about how scared we are of ourselves, how our rooms smell after a night out and the taste of the bean burrito we had for breakfast. We try to be nice to each other and buy each other americanos and listen. We are trying to remember what it was like to hold hands and kiss like we did before this mania overtook us. We try to say the things that seem true to us and to listen. We try to listen. We are trying to be sincere and have feelings and say things and buy each other americanos. We are trying to listen.
