Like me, I’m an asshole

Tags: , |

Don’t you like it? Click that button!
If you liked it, of course.
But if you didn’t, could you share it
for someone else to endorse?

I liked your picture the other day.
What takes you so long to discern?
You should respond to generosity
if you expect it in return.

Even if I bore you to death,
with my silly, uninteresting stuff,
I think you really owe me,
I took the time to check your crap!

Not that I expected something […]

Forever young

The ice melted,
the sugar dissolved.
Both faded
and got lost
in the red liquid of my glass,
in the red liquid of my core.

Rumination
turned into deep
useless reflection,
assisted by fruit flies and lever-pressing rats.
I made an effort
not to spit on the mirror while brushing my teeth,
but tiny white drops dried
and accumulated faster
than I was willing to clean them.
They showed me the mess
expanding beyond myself.
Accusing spots
pointing at different parts of my brain,
parts unwilling to negotiate with one another.
