Three things I like:

  • People who hum along with songs in stores.
  • Bright socks with somber outfits.
  • Black women’s voices.

Three things I do not like:

  • The intensely defined spaces between your teeth when you’ve just had them cleaned.
  • Removing dark fingernail polish to find that my nails aren’t clean.
  • The muffled “pink!” that moths make when they butt against the porch light in the dark.
