Ridiculously self- pressured, hopelessly (and unsuccessfully) in love for three years, and scared to write the things that matter. And that’s me on a good day . Good luck.

A quick poem from Algernon’s point of view from “Flowers for Algernon.”

My Experiment

July 16, 2021

I see, I observe, I wait
I do not understand the Angels 
Dressed in white, the color of the heavens, they
break nature’s law

I am one indebted, delivered, and denied 
To tests, experiments, and machines 
Yet they study me. 
Their knowledge is vast-
But what good is knowledge after the fact?

It is not how much I have changed. 
It is how much they have.
