DAYDREAM IN ULTRALIGHT BEAMS

 

I’m not doing the things that make me a fun and exciting person.   I keep doing this thing when you catch me looking up at you , like apologizing when it’s really not necessary.

creating space / to integrate this system of unbinding / i keep thinking i know what i want .

and then it’s over the wanting.                                              i don’t think     i’m here yet.

well okay. i was looking at you wanting to be this person

 

a person who is taking slow deep breaths

repeat the motion to continue

thoughts causing our feelings and behavior

a burrito is causing all my problems

u are mad. i am sad. u are pure.

create blank space/ a subtle thing to say

don’t push me i’m doing my best.

 

 

we fight you storm off

I take a bite of my burrito

The rain soaks the fresh moss

The produces check the light

The directors give us notes

i shouldn’t have done that “ for future reference”

are you okay / make eye contact / i am sorry

i’m sorry is a fake word a people should stop using it

action is an isolated memory / slow down/ repeat the question

our thoughts cause our feeling and emotions.

quiet and solitary contemplation

safe spaces in other people

return to sender

i drop my burrito and infinitely i run towards your 2015 honda fit

“ wait dude stop” “ i’ve finally transcend and my ego death has come”

i look at the screen with a bleak and tired facial expression and blow bubbles at

the computer monitor

this is the reality I’ve created around me

Disorganized

everything is moss

everything is stupid

you are a stupid creature

i am a stupid creature

we are learning repeated actions to make us better

SERIOUS LIFESTYLE CHANGES

soon we will be better

no more problems

no more moss

no more burritos.

 

 

I KEEP PETTING OUR HAMSTER IN A SLOW BUT SENSUAL FASHION MAKING HER FLAT

 

i am fat and black and beautiful

the white women gives me tight smiles

from the other side.

 

it’s okay.

 

sharing our differences

swallowing mouthfulls of glass

someone’s bound to get cut or addicted to crack.

 

Fist blooming

Fat clit

sweating in my Acne jeans

all my love is shoplifted.
