With Nothingness

I am content

with nothingness.

I feel like all of these recent thoughts

of breakthroughs are misleading.

Every once in awhile a Taoist outlook is healthy.

I should probably eat

soon though. My fingers are raw

from being bitten.

      I’m trying to stop biting them now, because my gram was able to recently, I’m starting with my left pinky and stopping one by one… if only I could stop smoking.

      Yes I was told by a few that they thought I wouldn’t have been able to pull off how old and prissy Torvald was but apparently I pulled it off well. Thanks for keeping in touch.
