8 Carrots

A horrific popularity contest
where everyone’s obsessed
with saying the last great thing. 

So, this is what healing looks like?
Another scab
to contradict unrealistic totems. 


Gilded, 
not gold. 

Excerpts from Morning View

"For once it was nice:
shedding myself of the most boring aspects of my life. 
Which were, realistically, the most exciting parts
in the lives of others...

Before, I placed all my perception of beauty into wonder,
into imagining great features in great lands,
great feats by great hands.
Now I know,
it is not those who wander that are lost,
but those who wonder endlessly of where they could go."
