you are a acute demonstration of smoke and mirrors, and every time i happen to miss you, i remind myself that even the trees with the most amount of leaves could turn out to be a dead tree in the middle of winter, butterflies decorating the bare arms of the tree. even if you are dead, you still cover yourself in gold tinfoil & refuse to admit it's anything but gold.
you are an acute demonstration of the planet enduring mass extinctions in these cruel ways to die, and you manage to still look healthy on the exterior, even when we have collided in ways where you are the drunk driver and i was the victim. i know you don't remember that long ago.
you are an acute demonstration of reminders that somewhere a family is falling apart, a child is ending up an orphan, a white lie that turns itself into a lie. you are a reminder that bad things happen to good people, but that even good things happen to bad people.
you are an acute demonstration that i am flawed, i am going through major bug fixes constantly, and never do i find the time to fix them. clocks are ignorant of me and cut me off exactly the way you did it.
