Inside is water and the stems of some flowers whose petals used to be white, now they’re slowly turning brown, wilting away. By tomorrow they will have developed a strange smell, sickly sweet, but right now, there is still something beautiful and alluring about them. Outside is someone’s forehead, she, or maybe he, is pressing the hot skin of their face against your cool ceramic surface. (...)
