Am I You (poetry)

Am I fractal
Crawling backward
Up a hill

Are you crackle
Like lightning
From a spear

Thank you to everyone who made my birthday special this year xo

Happy Birthday Me

The Vegan nail polish x 2, the vegan power snacks, the gift cards, the messages, the voicemail too

No word from my creators who birthed me

I IZ ORPHAN FROM NOW ON

THE FOLKS ARE DEAD

LIKE JIM MORRISON SAID OF HIS FOLKS

SAME

And I made white cake with egg whites, coconut milk, and coconut oil and it’s good

There was no poison in the cake

I don’t feel bad about baking my own cake

I’ve got a little coconut milk left and plan to make a wild blueberry coconut milkshake soon

There are birthday treats involved

And goods coming from Dolls Kill & Shein

There is no crying involved

I survived another period and year around the sun

I can’t tell you how incredibly painful it is to shed versions of yourself

And still not know if you’re alive

Like, what sort of fucked up gravy train am I on

I think consciousness simply evolved from awareness

I don’t even know if I’m real

Let me fire up this thing
