i'm writing to you because of circumstances beyond our control. the universe just decided to make me scribble down this epistle. my head rains, or perhaps it's hailing. regardless of what it is, it never snows. i have jumbled, broken, fragmented consciousness, full of drawing advice and some ****** youtube video about a cat playing the keyboard, looped on repeat for eternity. i was at the arcade the other day when it occurred to me that the world was a blank piece of lined paper and i was the pencil. but have you ever actually had to write from your mind alone? words flee you, coming and going and not sticking to paper. during that trip i talked to strangers as they crowded around the cabinets, despite my mama's advice to be careful in the world. some looked at me with an awkward smile. maybe there i did write something, the prose of yesterday. only the rain in my head never becomes a storm, i suppose. just bring an umbrella.
