You crash and leave me to burn for you,
so stop flipping the tables over
like a drunk in a bar.
it won't be enough to just
relive childhood,
and tell your old self
about what you should have
really been focusing on.
But, I won't regret nights
of scratching the varnish
off the table with that
quarter you found
as I listened to your
fabulist tales.

I fumbled in confusion
not knowing how to even begin.
as stupid sentiments barged in,
I waited for my mind to grow tepid and numb,
barring off sensation and satisfaction
like the stone's meditation
under the earth.

I only want to
eat crunchy toasted pistachios,
and sip coke until my brain is
buzzing bubbling static,
and rock about in the fetal position,
trying to stir up my insides,
pointlessly. But no,
I'll wake up in the morning,
dragging tangled vines behind me
as I make my way out of the jungle,
and crack down on
those foolish floods.
My friend and I had an exchange. She gave me a line from one of her poems, and I made another poem out of it. It's the first line.

It's only after I wrote it that she told me that the line was in reference to her computer. Lulz ensued.

yeah.... this poem was rewritten so much, it looks nothing like the original version of it xD
