The following is an excerpt from “Love, Labor, Lost: Run-ins with Exes” as seen on Lady Clever:
Of course tonight. Of course now. After two years of seeing him in showrooms and resigned to occupational silence, pressed up against a wall in a dress I do not own. After two years of dressing up, walking out, hoping to run into him so that I could have a voice when I was free to. Now is when I see him, when I’m storming away from the bathroom with a white shirt covered in red wine and the giant word LOVE. Of course tonight. Of course now.
