world and flying the
nest that some call home.
if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future
because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive
our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.
love is a mountain in the summer
partially obscured by by its own rising heat
i am driving towards it beneath freeways and past swaying trees
crying my eyes out because everything feels so real in this moment
my spirit is less like a pretty girl trapped
in the garbage can of my body
and more like a song i haven’t heard in years
playing through my speakers
and leaking out into the cracks of the pavement beneath me
when i look at the sky i wonder how am i still alive
i see men everywhere who want it to bow to them
but i am happy to survive beneath it
with my broken-girl fingers pushing into the soft dirt
i direct all my desire to the surface of my skin
and let it radiate from me quietly
i use what little power i hold
for breathing everything in from around me
holding on to the good
and letting go of the rest

"Asexual means you’re a plant"
"Fyuck. shit. fuck. you’ve figured me out. i’m a venus flytrap and i was given this human-seeming vessel as a way to evolve past eating flies. shit. goddamn."
"You can’t be asexual, you’re not a tree."
"don’t harsh my vibe man i’m just out here tryna get a little phosynthesis going on…and suddenly you’re here telling me i can’t eat. i’m honestly feeling so attacked right now."
*generic plant joke*
"please do not impose your fetishes on me thanks"
i mean. i just sort of go on a sarcastic rant about how words are so difficult and confusing and don’t these people know what english is??? it’s a goddamn miracle how dare they tarnish it with their using it how they need to that’s not what language was made for what is this communication bullshit
Another comeback: Break out singing “I’m a mean green mother from outer space.”
I just feel so terrible lately. It’s awful and can’t stay perky for more than a couple of hours. So I decided that I want to send postcards to strangers to cheer myself up. If anyone would like a postcard with an uplifting message or quote or doodle, message me with your mailing address, yeah? And spread the word because I want to do a bunch of these.
its weird society sees people with tattoos and modifications as being unclean and poor when in reality its so expensive to get those things in the first place and the aftercare is strenuous and daily and in reality modified people are probably the most hygienic and well off people you’ll meet
I covered night phones over the weekend for my coworker here at the hotel so that he could go on vacation with his daughter. He just got back and brought me huckleberry chocolate and huckleberry jam as a thank you. I am so happy and thankful; I was feeling so empty earlier and really needed a nice gesture like this.
what if obama does the ice bucket challenge and nominates queen elizabeth
what if obama actually talks about what’s going on in ferguson
what if obama stopped exterminating the middle eastern population with drones
what if obama lowered my gotdamn tuition
What if everyone gets educated and stops acting like the President can make decisions for the country by themselves
