should i start collecting bugs again, like i used to do when i was a child?

i could, of course, choose the easy way out and come clean about it all

- the drugs, the alcohol, the sex, the abortion, the cheating, the anxiety, the one time i dreamt of birthing your child

the world’s sins, wrapped up into one average-looking, walking, talking contradiction

and i have this friend who never listens,

she just awaits her turn to speak

i bet she’s also the oldest of three,

firstborn fruit of a loveless marriage

she now looks for warmth in beds she barely sleeps in and dreams of living by the lake

why haven’t i moved to portugal yet?

sunburn or some tough love, i don’t know what i need most

mañana, i’ll be a pile of worms under the ground

better be happy with very little while we’re at it

cause they’re putting clowns on a pedestal

and mass produce Matisse for the nouveau riche

's white walls


nombre femenino

cualidad de sobrio.

took the train to the seaside, everything was closed so i peed in the dunes,

a cop saw me + gave me a fine

life’s no fun anymore

you need to learn your lesson or the lesson will learn you, LOL


i’ll switch to Gauguin and think about Tahiti


white men talk about the Congo as if it’s still their home

he prepares fresh Fufu every Tuesday, like a boy without a father, desperately clinging on to every good guy that comes along


reality/concept/absurd/molecules/still here/i like being here. i’m still here, aren’t i?
