shoutout to that one really sweet chrysanthemum drink you had when you were younger. it's still there in 99 Ranch you know.

mood: narrowed eyes and starlit skies.

five things:
—i think this generation will change the world.
—working on a novel but these days not really.
—too lazy to edit.
—i wish i could rap and produce music and stuff but i get too caught up in my own head to do it.
—i keep the seven deadly sins well fed next to my feet.

leave me empty: public catharsis

FREE WRITING


you take a scalpel and drag it across your chest,

prosecution of the envious

lay me down in this stunted green fern 
before i decompose into fertilizer, scream me to sleep

tell me oh Lord how should i repent for the unwitting production of this emerald mustard gas 
i inhale it...

three types of exhaustion

FREE WRITING


exhaustion—like a good tres leche cake—deepens the longer you leave it to sit. 

    (i)
like playing your third volleyball game in a day, finally at the final game 
only to lose 25-10 in two sets. 
(you see it days later in your dreams, how the ball sounded when it dropped for the last time).
