Extinction is Not the Same as Death


Extinction is not the same as death but a cessation of birthing
and the inscriptions that partook of that life form


it is a game, you know? this is not serious, but again it means everything
in this moment!
beautiful futures right now
nothing that we lived was worth it
(because of the cost)
but there again


today I saw no point
on the whole
I focus on the way light should
shoulder the blame
throw coins in the sink
drink too much water
throw myself in the
long tears fell
on the childrens' wisteria
a flood of choice

the supernatural high that follows
we're extinct


if the world is ending why is Zayn so hot

radicalised by FOBE (fear of being extinct)

It's beautiful when people shut up: it seems large amounts
of money can achieve silent corridors and restaurants, etc

Microdermabrasion of the soul

I've got all these friends
you don't know about
they just go to another school





Frog Desert


I see 92 inches of you in a wetsuit holding a giant panda
like a door mouse expanding
Nothing ever happens except that I love my fucking life through you
Nothing ever happens except that I fucking love you
Heaven and earth are heartless
but nothing ever happens to me
except that I love you


I bet I've bought a 3-door parcel shelf
B5 is between A4 and A5
Hollllllywooooood blvdddddd early a$$ a.m. #putinwerk
heartbreaking and endless effort not to experience ourselves


nightingales and nightgowns not nightingowns
ceiling and floor not floorpit
