sleep. die, awake, do, water, be, decide, play, die, do, nothing ever.
Stuart Phillips and Lindsey Drury

Lindsey Drury: thanks again for fabulous shortened version of life performance, god in five minutes, extended throughout joy forever, thankyou. me. i would like to visit though i fear if i did so i might speechlessly stand around your house saturated in

 my own excessive awkwardness. can give you whitney tucker contact in nyc when ready, she’s a blast, dancing with her is like eating cum and vomiting and smashing a bicycle while cooking brownies over a house fire, really raging. why rescind the word desperate? i’ve always been afraid that those who read what i’ve written have some kind of problem with perceptual jailing— that the way i am seen is a layering of truths upon truths until they wall me in with my own words. I fall quickly, and rise up swiftly as well, I am fast, internally. be well love. thanks for suggestions. take it infernally, internally, to heart, thankyou, helps. It’s the only way to get the something else, to gnash the teeth through the mush, to push back the boring utopic. i think about how you dance. that giving and unforgiving. that necessarily superfluous quality in all the people who dance with you. that indignant taste i get in my mouth over the possibility of human connection. the way you so gracefully never give anything up or hand anything over.
see you in flavorville, deathville, aliveville, alignmentville, see you there, and we’ll do what we do. be well, tender explosive one. be well. heart version of wow. bless me. bless me. you. god. one tender shit hole. be well. me. bless. me tired. sleep. die, awake, do, water, be, decide, play, die, do, nothing ever. me x bless. me. x bless. me x snore. me
