“Imagining She’s Someone Else” / Memorable Fancies #1208

[“When lights go out / May two real people breathe in a real room.” – Sylvia Plath]

Sometimes I imagine she’s someone else. That can be exciting. Sometimes I imagine that she’s imagining that I’m someone else, too. And perhaps she’s imagining that I’m imagining that she’s…

The problem is, I can’t decide which someone else she ought to be. I do try to imagine I’m having sex with real people, not someone I invented in my head. That isn’t simple; making people up is a lot easier than knowing them as they are.

And perhaps the people I imagine are imagining me imagining them; they’re inventing me in their own heads. That could be exciting, I imagine.
