drastic, offputting, offensive, hurtful

poetry

i like the life of a ghost
because often times
i’d wanted to die

skin is overrated,
anyway

and i can’t imagine
with you all here
why i’d want to be,
too. i suppose it’s
lonely,
with no one to
joke around with
about the pictures
that you take,
but the scales are
my gods
and in weighing the
options i find
that the life of a ghost
is far superior.
