By Myself Forever

I like your natural hair today and your natural face and your natural hips and your natural belly and your crazy eyes. I don’t wish for you to be different but in the ways that make you a better version of you to you and for you. You wait for other people to tell you…

Unrelated

The details of your face and smell are finally, fading and they say that expressing anger is always the best thing for you and maybe I’m a bullet dodger but the sound of your voice is becoming all of the voices of the past even though they say that many animals can form friendships with…

Against the wind

I lack symmetry but I can still love me If I want to nobody will force me either way but either way I can’t get to perfection I can’t even get close I lack symmetry but I can still see the good in me If I wanted to and I know that nobody will force…

Super Lifelike

Whatever I’m designed to feel, I’m feeling whatever is coming will inevitably hurt The trees aren’t swaying at all today So many things left to learn Whatever I’m supposed to see, I’m seeing whatever is gonna happen is in the works The breeze isn’t blowing at all today Yet everything around me burns Maybe I…

Ain’t no Network TV here, doll

I stayed present for you. It’s weird how it always feels like we’ve been at this you and me for a million years and You don’t let my mind stray away to yesterday so thank you because I can still feel you inside me for hours after you leave regardless of how I was feeling…

Warren G and Gluten Free

I’m sorry it’s hard to stop. I’m back in grad school now and I’m panicking. It’s actually pretty fucking great, that’s the problem. It’s legit wonderful. I like school. I like order. I’m trying. I take cranberry pills and plant based digestive enzymes and green tea supplements now. I meditate on Wednesdays and listen to…

Crazy Foxes

They drink La Cerveza del Pacifico Clara around here

This is the part that gets so hard for me. The part where I don’t know what to feel or how to trust it. I’m a fucking nightmare. I was told recently or I read somewhere that if I want to ever trust other people, I have to learn to trust myself. And I don’t…

The Nephew of Ishmael

I’m a little antsy in a controlled way. You don’t know me and I don’t know you but it feels like we’ve met. I’m a little nervous in a giddy way. You don’t know me and I’ve never met you but it feels like we’ve kissed. I’m a little excited but not in a scared…

Vladimir Mayakovsky

Not like any of it matters but It was 14 degrees Celsius in Paris today. And you wouldn’t believe it but ants evolved from waspy ancestors and Nobody cares, I know, but if they did they’d read more Carol Ann Duffy and eat more Chia but The mind stands still and Time is unusually resistant…
