my general outlook on life is a lot more worrisome now

that i have realized i’ve perfected how to maintain a balance

of not caring at all about how others perceive me

and caring so much that it is all but crippling


when you told me you haven’t stopped thinking about me

since we ran into each other in the doorway of the kitchen

i told you i was smiling through the phone and i was telling the truth


when i told you i predicted we could be very comfortable together

for a very long time i was still telling the truth


everything inside my mouth seems very intentional now


humans don’t deserve to feel happy or safe

but i am open to trying at it for you


the older i get, the less real the world seems


we all cycle through the same four personal emotions

for our entire lives because we refuse to admit

that sometimes we make the wrong decisions

i’ve given up on the idea that i will be in charge

of a lot of money one day and so should you.

sometimes it is physically painful to remember

that i won’t be able to fall asleep tonight unmedicated.

when will we all admit that we prefer falling asleep

with another sleeping face in front of our own.

my earliest memories involve watching boys kill a frog

using chopsticks and a brick in south korea.

my earliest memories involve tadpoles

that didn’t know what was waiting for them.

do we ever become not killers.

will my temperature ever be the same on all surfaces of my body.

will anyone ever trust me if i can’t stop talking over them.

motion to avoid making important decisions for the rest of my life.

motion granted.

can a human learn to not be human for only a little bit.

new york is too big if it takes 8 hours for me to travel from here to you.

the world is full of babies but i am not.

i am taking small but emotionally substantial steps

to increase my personal capacity for being a vengeful bitch

and it’s true that this wasn’t the case before.

i wasn’t a vengeful bitch and also i wasn’t trying as hard.


everything is very easy now. everything is a math problem to me.

every obstacle can be calculated, divided and saved for later.

any dilemma can be zeroed out and any conflict can be

stretched towards infinity if that’s how i want to play this game.

i was not very nice to you the in the cold wind warm weather last night,

we ate six tacos against a brick wall and everything was too hot.

i can try harder i guess but you could try a little less.


stop yelling. i’m tired. everyone else is louder. what do you want now.

i’m scared. sometimes i just don’t open my eyes. man up, jerk.

i’m collecting ex-human trophies but isn’t that the point of anyone who feels.


you shook your head like a word desperately clinging to the tip of your tongue.

you coughed into your shoulder like a million years.

you reached for my hand like kidding yourself.

you finished lunch like never alone.

you looked at my hips like swearing under your breath.

you made a sound like waking up.

i am taking sabbatical from my life in new york

and then i am taking sabbatical from my life after that.

i have never met a person who feels comfortable while standing.


i remember one morning waking up on mitch’s floor

and lucy turned to him from across the room and said,

‘how are you so happy, how do you do it?’ and he just smiled

and kept eating his bowl of cereal and lucy turned to me

and said, ‘isn’t it great that he can, though.’


every current version of me is a terrified version of a younger me.

every current version of you is a more tired version of a smaller you.


every morning i wake up and try to remember two nights ago

at 7 p.m., the heaviest parts of my body, where i hid my rings

before i fell asleep, how am i supposed to smell today.

every morning i wake up and we are together anyway.

Everyone has a person they stalk shamelessly on the internet & mine is Mark Leidner. This is a print I made of a tweet he did recently that I would like to have tattooed on my neck / tombstone. Not sorry, y’all.
