descriptive, detailed love.
"i love you, so i—"
what are the things that i do to make you feel love, and how can i do more of them? does love work a little bit like its own hierarchy of needs? perhaps "food" and "shelter" and "how do i keep you safe" are base concerns for being a lover? that the people we say i love you to should be people who we can, at the least, strategize in community with to deliver security in those things? what are your needs under capitalism and how do i make your survival more or less viable such that you are able to be available to these loftier loves?
