It’s Friday evening.
I’m trying to push past the bastards of this week,
and the never-ending sweaty threads of Summer.
Surprised to feel ebullient.
The air heavy with fermentation, with endings.
It’s exciting, these pseudo-changes;
my body forever cueing in to the back-to-school feeling—
who will I meet this year? Who will I be?
I don't want to be a writer today;
I want to be evil or an idiot,
far from myself & my dreams.
I have such a high threshold for discomfort,
due in no small part to how I was raised, or lackthereof.
But fear & its mammoth impact on life & creativity
is something I did not request—
these aspirations could not be whittled down
to whatever works, even if I tried,
despite what Instagram entrepreneurs tell me.
There is no shame in just existing.
Yet I can't just sit here and elegantly suffer
life's silly accidents without words.
Well, come on roll with me 'til the sun goes down
South Florida sunrise
Say you wanna hit the highway while the engine roars
Well, come on, roll with me 'til the sun goes down
That South Florida sunset, oh yeah
Caressing you from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando
Well, come on, roll with me 'til the sun dips low
Florida sun, oh girl
When I'm far from home and them pink clouds show
Stuck out somewhere with folks I don't know
'Cause you keep me nice and you keep me warm
Wanna feel you on me, can't wait to get back here again.
Ooh baby, you're so gorgeous
How 'bout you and me...
Take a ride with me, baby, you by my side
How does it sound, you and I?
If I ain’t gonna get rich,
I am going to do whatever
The fuck I want.
From copy day jobs
To the music pod,
This is my path to pave.
And I will do it
If I see you in my dreams
Yeah, so am I.
And it’s not a lie,
What would Bowie do?
what you look like
and then catch a glimpse
"not as bad as I thought."
What's the punctuation
of that above stanza?
like should it end with a question mark,
and should that question mark
be inside the quotation?
I wonder if
other people have these thoughts,
silly little existential ponders
that just need
a little solidarity.
