    Today I found a girl

    Who was pretty nice

    To me.

    She made me stop and talk

    And rest

    and breathe.

    She said your stomach growls,

    Your legs

    Are weak.

    How’d you like to come

    And sit

    With me?

    .

    And my how time it flew

    And passed

    Us by.

    Lunch turned into tea

    Turned in-

    to night.

    The way her body curved

    It shaped

    My mind.

    And then her laugh,

    Her smile,

    Her eyes.

    .

    Would you mind if I stayed

    For an hour or two

    Or three?

    We could sit and talk

    And laugh

    And crawl between the sheets.

    And maybe I can stay the night

    Or two

    Or three?

    And you’ll hold onto me.

    And we can spend forever

    Cus talk

    Is cheap.

    And maybe nights will

    Slowly carve a curve and crash on

    Into weeks.

    Maybe we’ll be cuddled

    On the couch or sipping

    Sex on the beach

    Maybe I could stay

    For life, just

    You, and me.

    i got fire in my blood

    Wild Turkey and the nicotine

    might just call my doctor

    have him put me on amphetamines

    driving past the memories

    i'm pushing on 100 speed

    crossing single-white lines

    with a blade til my bones weak.

    cold-brew hipster

    gothboi fantasies

    hard to think straight when

    my thoughts are attacking me

    here i let the voices out

    inner demons writing rhapsodies

    before i go and swing from

    a noose and a dramatic tree

    .

    can't decide what i want between

    freedom and consistency

    i say i want it done

    but i think i want her missing me

    last week i bought a gun*

    this week i went to therapy

    when will i be free from all the

    thermo-manic tendencies?

    .

    drowning in my bed

    breathing wild turkey

    i couldn't feel if i were dead,

    but i like the way she hurts me

    i've come to know the pain

    it's like a second home to me

    liquor novocaine

    im falling from autonomy.

    if mecca was a bedroom

    girl you were a God to me

    and laying here alone is

    a wicked act of blasphemy.

    never knew you were a snake

    feeding hate from an apple tree

    I'll chop it down, and build a tomb

    so you can hold me,

    as an effigy

    (* didnt actually buy a gun. me no like. literally 0 plans to.)

    short one. wrote it sober, so i couldn't (didn't?) really expand on it.

    either way, just bought a bottle for the first time since shit happened but i don't plan on going too crazy this time.

    then again, do i plan half the shit i do? or am i just constantly fumbling my way up through life.

    either way here's some shit about math.

    enjoy.

    You said I was the one

    But that was only when you managed

    To get some rest, and breathe, and

    Keep yourself from going rabid

    But must of the time you

    Wore your claws out like a savage

    So if we’re being honest I‘m the

    .08 on average.

    Also don’t want to bump stuff from earlier unless other people decide to drop a comment.

    Just wanted to say thanks for those who like the stuff I post here (for whatever inexplicable reason hahaha.)

    It does make it easier to wade through the water knowing I’ve got a space to just vent it all when I need to.

    If it’s any consolation, the day to day has gotten significantly better than it was just even a few months ago. Things are trending up, generally speaking.

    Just the low points are still low. But hey, ‘s how it goes.

    Much love.

    In the shadows

    Like a ghost you hide

    In the single most foreign

    Corners of my mind

    Therapy and pills still

    Can’t subside the angelic choir

    Of your pretty lies

    Promises you made,

    The bones I broke

    You once took my breath

    And now I choke

    Jesus let me breathe

    Is there hope for me?

    .

    Now I desire

    The obscure

    All that reminds

    Of being yours

    Your oils, poison

    My waters, pure

    Your love is cancer

    There is no cure.

    .

    I watched my grandfather take his final breaths as he kissed my head and you held my hand. Not two months later you foresaw our end, and decided not to keep me, even as a friend.

    And now you’re off, marriage in the plans. I pray your time falls like the sand and hits the bottom of every glass as fast as it can.

    I have no home. I’m lost and cold. You promised me a home would grow. We got a dog, and had planned for more. Mouth of this world, a fish at shore you took my breath and killed me slow.

    I’m suicidal, I have no hope. I’ve not a gun, don’t have a rope. The only reason I’ve not a note, I’d end it all, I’d end it all.


    I just want to feel pretty.

    Pretty loved and pretty free

    But for now I keep to getting

    Pretty drunk, it isn’t cheap

    But I can afford it/‘s kinda sweet

    Too bad you’re not round

    To drink with me.

    I’d fill the bottle

    We’d watch the office

    Instead I scar

    Until I am solid

    An ugly rock

    A useless object

    I’ll break my stones

    And build a coffin

    And die in your name

    Die in your name.

    but i want to die

    don't let me die.

    please give a call

    and say my name

    please rub my chest,

    "it won't be the same"

    tell me it'll change

    tell me it'll change

    tw: self-harm; suicide; lost love.

    i hit my cigarette

    like an abuser hits her wife

    because i'm a fucking coward

    to afraid to take his life

    i've felt love before

    i beg it through the strife

    but i only find a heart

    at the wrong side of a blunt and useless knife

    .

    and it's only mine

    at least there's proof

    that i can feel

    when blood protrudes.

    but that's not "work appropriate"

    so i get tattoos

    what a shame i can't get paid to die.

    There was a phenomenal piece by Rémy Zaugg at the ArtIC that I fell in love with. Kinda thing I'd have leaning on a wall in my house if I was in some evil kombucha supervillain mansion. It was called "About Blindness 2" and it was so striking and so... demanding of attention that I fell in love.

    But my favorite piece has to go to the deceptively simple "Untitled (Portrait of Ross in L.A.)" from Felix Gonzalez-Torres. There's a brief description under the piece itself, I highly recommend you give it a look.

    Only thing I recommend to people who go vegan is supplementing your vitamin D, and treating yourself by getting a bidet.

    You're gonna be getting a lot more fiber, if you're often eating a lot more fruits, veg, and grains. That means you're gonna be pooping a lot! If you're gonna be on the toilet once a day, you might as well do it like royalty.

    And the Vitamin D is just as easy as taking a multivitamin, and you're good from there :)

    "Vossi Bop" x STORMZY

    That, and I really love the editing and film style of "Just One Thing" x WICCA PHASE SPRINGS ETERNAL. Very cold; very gothic, very cinematic.

    I'd prefer ~rainbow as I think it's a cute way of going about a "catchall" in terms of inclusivity. Though, I also see no issue with it remaining ~lgbt as that's been common initialism (as far as I know) for the whole LGBTQIA2+ scene for a while. ("awhile"? "a while"?)

    Eh.

    If you eat Chipotle food 5 times and get E. coli 5 times; is it the fault of Chipotle or Mexican food?

    Sure people use JavaScript to do shitty things, but that’s not JavaScript’s fault; nor does that take away from its incredible capabilities as a language, which is mostly what I was speaking towards.
