    the smell of his neck,
    the pen in my pocket,

    they say life is a gift. sometimes i wish there were exchanges or returns. I know I’d do an exchange. I’d go back and get jp morgans life or a rockfellers or at least store credit. Maybe even a cash refund and save up and wait until I saw something I really wanted like an […]
