Transcendentalist Sidewalk Chalk

FREE WRITING

I have a flower petal fetish. I like things broken, spilling out desperate perfume. I’ve taken to doing transcendentalist sidewalk art, trying to mend my perversion. But I can only decorate what has already been destroyed.

I grew up in a pseudo-liberal hippy commune, full of old people who stopped smoking pot when the seventies came to a close. Now they rely on drum circles and potlucks and community gardens to ease their addiction to utopia.

Some lovely spring days, I think we humans fragment reality with our uncomfortable rhythm. But when write, I realize the universe would be rhythm-less without our presumptuous categorization of moments. When I close my eyes, I don’t dream of Upstate New York, I see London: angular city blocks, hidden allies, aching feet, and dirty white facades.  
As I said in my bio, I don't nessasarily believe my own assertations:)

    I love transcendentalism sooo much- I kinda want to just pull a Walden and go build a cabin on the water w some books, ya know? But let's be honest- if I did that I'd end up pretending to be Snow White and start feeding (and naming and talking to and dancing with) wild animals. RIP me XD

    This is beautiful—I don't understand it in the slightest, and yet maybe I do. In a way :)
