I must tell you how much I admire the humble design of your geometry. Your form follows the function of your brain, and that is where my love for you enters the door. My sweetheart, you are a beautiful catastrophe. The longitudinal section of your body is my machine to live in, and the less I see you the more I want you. I respect the void in your skull and do not treat it as emptiness rather think of it as a space to be washed with natural lighting and an atrium that creates the chimney effect for all the heat that you store during your daily intake of our relationship.

But I will have to admit that whenever I see the circles in your body, I immediately want to step out of this relationship, as I believe, in our time, a complex form like you follows relationships with profits, someone who complies with all your codes. I don’t know why you think you can hire me as a lover and then tell me what to do. I cannot offer you anything more than a square space to live in, a white empty room in which you can only keep your black shirts and black boots, but I can offer you love with style. Please remember that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Let’s meet tonight for an espresso shot and discuss our future together.

With passion,

The Architect
