27/367: The Four Tops - Ask the Lonely
Ok, let’s do it. I’m not up to writing much tonight. I’d only be able to write about annoying self-pitying shit, so instead I’m going to post a poem I wrote when I was…16? 17? I don’t know exactly, but they’re from awhile ago. I found a stack of poems when I was cleaning out drawers. They’re unbelievable. Possibly more horrible than anything I would write now, but I’m distanced enough from them that that’s not a problem. oh, & this is one i am actually willing to post. there are dozens that are so much worse. ok.

It is indeed.
