place a crystal

in the pocket

of your pants


do you feel

a hundred miles

away from yourself?


if you’re a witch

then I’m a piece of shit

my perception changes

as my blood thickens


gone sane for some reason

you’re comfortable financially

but hungry anyway


(by choice?)

we’re misery incarnate

an idiosyncrasy of the failed plan
