what I am feeling like right now + maybe this won’t be me 5 years from now, I am hopeful

sometimes I wondered if I lived a life or a margin in some ideological footnote a mundane little hum that could be erased by the dust that is at the corners of some sanguine hourglass where the glass knew me as some distant microbe not too tough to taste but gelatinous enough to stick andContinue reading “what I am feeling like right now + maybe this won’t be me 5 years from now, I am hopeful”
