    I’m so angry that such delightful architecture is in a city that is both exorbitantly expensive and evidently entirely on a steep incline.

  5. sometimes all at once

    i am consumed with love and horror

    for how far we have come as a nation

    and how far we have yet to go.

    i ask the turner of hearts, 

    to turn mine again,

    so i can remember what it feels like 

    to have absolute faith,

    wide-eyed innocence, 

    and hopeful patience

    that we can overcome this.

    this world is but a prisoner for the believers

    i’ve been plotting my escape

    but words aren’t the same as keys

    so i remain locked up, still trying to sing

    still trying to feel

    counting the hours and keeping His name on my tongue

    the one that i love and fear

    sometimes all at once

    We set sail
    On an open sea.
    No direction.
    No guidance.
    Nothing but our fear.
    But we had each other.
    Though the journey be rough
    We will find dry land.

  7. "

    She was a tiny paper body nestled
    between layers/ layers/ layers
    of apricots and milk.

    Her father taught her chocolate and bicycles.


    What happens when a human
    Becomes a place of occupation?

    On her cartographic skin.
    ‘these are my borders.’

    She was not her own territory.


    They were afraid and
    she was too. She got scar(r)ed quickly.

    She watched herself dissolve into brine from
    the waist down…

    She watched herself burn out from
    the waist upwards…

    She could smell ashes.


    maybe she could be/
    was her own founder.

  9. going to start being kind to myself

    i am a nocturnal creature

    my energy and creativity emerge in the late hours

    i am not meant for the regular 9 to 5 job

    forcing myself to stick to that to fit in and be normal is pointless

    harmful and exhausting

    it’s okay if other things have to give in order for me to work like this

    it’ll all be worth it in the end

    i just hope i don’t go completely over the edge

    been getting sick and having migraines a lot lately

    but i’m going to stop beating myself up

    and start being kind to myself

    i’m only human
