[from Andrea Lawlor:]

He stroked his throat til the bump smoothed down and then he checked his look in the mirror on the back of his closet door. How could he look so pretty? He was a slutty superstar. His black motorcycle boots and close-fitting Levi’s jacket, big fur-lined Lenny Kravitz coat, every detail he approved. Who was he? He was the girl he wanted to fuck.
