knowing
Exosphere May 2021
I suspect there’s a huge part of me
you would never have understood

like a rhinoceros
in a field of wildflowers

to drift off into the night
let new dreams take flight
thank you mysterious muse

years
Exosphere May 2021
there’s something wrong with my phone
a weird broken light
I need to send it away to be fixed
some people would go crazy over this
but I don’t mind
I have the kind of resolve that comes from
years
of unreasonable discipline
May 2021 · 95
audience of one

everything will be fine
Exosphere May 2021

so if you can manage to stay in it
everything will be fine for you too

terrifying
Exosphere May 2021
sometimes I worry that you are a big mistake

good bye girl
Exosphere May 2021
good bye girl
thank you for your place in this world
I appreciated your company
and your protective iron-y
your hope, compassion,
self deprecating wit
I admired your honesty

but as far as it goes
I think this is it
I’m really good at saying good bye
I do it over and over

Apr 2021 · 104
remember
Exosphere Apr 2021
I still love you today
but it will be ok
while I do not believe in fate

it doesn’t matter what happens
or how I feel
I must only
be
here
now
