he said “well you only like me when i’m not around” i said “no you only like ME when I’M not around” i woke up right as we kissed to the snoring sound of his best friend lying on my ground he reached and held my hand and said it’s ok i said i wanna date eliza i just wish i was gay then i was walking around later that same day saw some other sad sacks on the street and said hey he said “well you only like me when i’m not here” in the dream it seemed so real i didn’t think it wouldn’t be real of course it wasn’t real cause i don’t see him anymore and he wouldn’t have said something like that cause he know its not true he would have said something along the lines of you love me but i don’t love you he said i only liked him when he wasn’t around couldn’t get it out of my head because it didn’t make sense i cried to myself thinking i lost a prince i thought to myself and since then i’ve been thinking about writing him a letter found a letter to my brother that he had forgotten i wonder if he forgot my letters? or if he still has that rock? what a waste of a rock what a waste of a thought

thunder and lightning and hands in the dark wanting to kiss by the train tracks that spark summer days move and the year mark will follow skateboardin grooves with a heart that is hallow dark boys in cars and light boys in the park punk boys with cats or with dogs who don’t bark get drunk and smile real broad in the backseat or sit shotgun if ur really in heat * henry is dead henry is drunk jom is bread jom’s a punk i swallowed a spider, i’m hollowed, you fighter i’m small and you’re larger, he liked henry darger * what i’d do for a drop of whiskey with you i’ll tell you a thing or two it’s one of those times i can’t open my eyes come by, i’m high rolling pins on sore legs drinking down til i’m dregs i’m surrounded by regs can i ride on your pegs going home now to sleep i want your company let’s go bowling some day let’s go swimming some day * my mouth is bleeding you’re simplified i have a fever but i don’t mind it’s a nice distraction from the fact that you made me cry i’m telescoping in your mind for another lie i’m innocent i got no restraint you’re jaded and you are late it’s a nice distraction from the fact that i already ate my tummy’s full but i’m telescoping for another plate
