Your Wildest Dreams by Meghan Kemp-Gee







They’re all coming true. They’re all writing down

notes during your deposition. They’re all

riding the Expo Line and inventing new

ways of Staying Sexy After Thirty.


They’re all shaving the hair on their arms and

bleaching the coffee stains out of their teeth.

They’re deadlifting two hundred pounds and they’re

flirting with men who weigh two hundred pounds.

They’re talking at a bar and they’re still

looking the men in the eye but they’re also

watching themselves in the mirror behind

the bar and they’re seeing themselves through two


sets of eyes. They’re finding you guilty of

every thought you had when you were barely

sleeping and they’re all on record now that

they’re all written down. They’re all coming true.
