You are the prettiest thing that has ever scared me.
Before being consumed
by Zippo lighter tongues
from tailgate coals
she looked past my face into my head
“This place is barely alive.
Go find something worth dying for.”
i write these things
and i know you
i fight these things
and you know you
You ever seen a waist-high pile of garbage? You ever seen a waist-high pile of garbage on every corner every day for several years?
Think to yourself: "Is this a part of my body?"
If the answer is “Nope.”: keep your hands and opinions to yourself.
If the answer is “Yeah.”: be kind to it and fight for it’s rights.
You are so enough.
how enough you are.
