"You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present." -John Green

The old attic of
forgotten memories
beckons me deep in my
so I dream up boxes and
open them up like wounds
(because they are).

Mistakes ricochet all over my
brain like the angry buzz of bees
on three shots of espresso
except it’s worse than an echo;
it’s life.
