This is real.

Face of a victim, body of a survivor.

I call it sex
because I don’t know
how else to say
terrified of dying.
Silence ruins
everything. It says:
you will not get your wings this way
not the wings you want
and you want
more than anybody.
I have wanted
many unfair things.
What is most unfair
is that the Earth is still okay
with me being here
I think, and even
encourages it.
Hello ocean,
you have asked me
not to die, but I swim
in neon pools
that are happy
to kill me.

I Planned To Post Something Tonight, Much Like The Other Night

Incidentally, some things happened and now everything I wanted to say doesn’t matter.

I wanted to talk about feeling terrible and my birthday (it’s my birthday as of midnight) etc.

It falls in line with the unfortunate death of Robin Williams. however, an unarmed teenager named Michael Brown was killed by police on saturday in missouri. And we’re all talking about Robin Williams.

Neuroatypicality is something I know too well. But this life ain’t about me. And I refuse to ignore the death of some poor kid to contribute to making it about white people. 

That’s all I’ve got.

Today Is A Day.

Unlike many of the ones before it, I was prepared for today. 

The only thing I can think of to say is that I don’t know what to do in this situation. As such, I’m going to follow precedent and put something vague on a randomly picked website.

I have always said that there’s a mountain goats song for every occasion. This one, titled Waving At You, is too perfect.

That’s all I’ve got at present, I guess. Brief shouting into the void and wondering if there’s going to be an echo back. 

In a couple days it’ll be my birthday, and then it will be time to Stop This Nonsense And Get Back To Work.
