So this is what it tumults to, I am alive, I am 25, or 24, or 23, or 27. — Not dead yet, but sparkless — when you’re dying you don’t want to die; you scream a scream of a million screams for help, and here I am today ///as

a victim of Instagram, of a human ego with skull and brain but no substance. Image with no corresponding reality, a chasing blur

of nada surf and everything and everyone:

But even there the thoughts are hard to control, the calm darkness erodes with warm and bright thoughts. I want to watch this, I want to buy this, I want to get high, I want to masturbate, I want food, I want a fire, I miss him, an aesthetic scene of what the New Year should be.


The mind drills and drills and drills — pillaging thought after thought after thought after desire after desire desire desire desire.

We want every person to be as big as Tokyo or New York City

it never comes

We’re ghettoes of fat, chemicals, and pixels
