    In a world of injustice, where nothing makes sense or works out as planned. My mind lives in logic, and when I wake up from my constructed dream, reality seems so

    My blue plastic watch won’t stop…44 minutes, and I’ve answered two problems out of 8. This is the recurring nightmare, the panic. That does not compute. Helpless in my tin shell.

    This is what I hear: the fog, the footsteps, the soggy grass hanging its head. We’re on the edge of something good, why won’t they believe me?

  • used commented on the post, luxurious 8 years, 6 months ago

    Sometimes I am simply not prepared for these words. I go in with something in mind to write about, something dark and brooding, and what do I get to go off of? Luxurious. How can I write about us cracking, breaking down, the pages and pages of dense, nonsensical reading, the tears and the broken […]

    My hair is wet. What better time to die than as I step out of this shower, dry and warm as I’ve ever been.

    I can’t get hysterical anymore. My heart has been twisted and compressed, and now it is a hard little ball, and no more tears can be wrung out of it. I smile now, and you think that’s even worse.

    The sharp edges of “acceptable”, the scars that never, ever fade or warp, but stay jagged and white on our souls.

    What I thought was pretense, hubris, wrinkles, neck folds, wealth. What I met working at my dad’s office was energy, smiles, youth, intelligence…I wish he was still in school.

    The bite of muffin I’m chewing is really the only place I’m getting any strength from. I’m a tree uprooted, groping for family, friends, love, affirmation, vindication, strength. The only thing keeping me grounded is this bite of muffin.

    didn’t I just do this word yesterday? last night? it’s all blending together. no time for capital letters. no time for details. is this C+ work? audience…my professors? my lover? me? is everyone else an illusion, or am i just very very sleepy? am i really asking my dumb, deaf audience for these answers?

  • used commented on the post, audience 8 years, 6 months ago

    You were my audience. I sold myself to you. I acted.
    Now we are one and the same, and it tortures me that I ever spoke to you as if you were Other.

    I had a dream last night that I had gathered mice from Nepal to do experiments on. They were black mice, and I caught them and brought them back to my home. The experiments involved injecting their brains with virus that alters their response to low calorie metabolism. One day I woke up and realized […]

    With you, I am. Now. The price is that my past must be an empty whole.

    Am I in shape? What bikini best flatters your shape? What fruit shape are you? I’m in some kind of shape. I don’t know if I could do it, knowing the shape I’m in. SHAPE UP
