“I am a weird potato, just don’t eat me.”

Selected Works:


Cars that could fly by

Like a bird that could never stop.

It would be weird to see stoplights and stop signs

In the sky but these things would become a must

Unless you want the bird to become just a memory

As it tumbles to the ground ripped apart.

A Letter to a “Friend”

We became friends in the weirdest way

Funny though

I can’t seem to remember how.


Holding each other up

While both trying to break down.

Choking on the water that we are both being forced under

Trying to break free from the binds of tidal waves


I care more for you than you will ever for me

Years ago we talked weekly, daily, every single minute.

Now it’s a random text here and there.

Whenever we both want something.

When you want me to cover for you,

Because who would want their parents to know that you’re about to go do drugs.

When I want to pretend that I actually still have friends

That I don’t have to use the internet for to talk to.

They say time changes things

That people change.

I guess they got that one right.


Because whenever we fight, like cats and dogs

Tearing each other apart fur strand by fur strand.

Bones by retched bone.

It seems that I am the only one trying to

Fix our broken phones that used to be so connected.

That I am the only one

Who has cut my skin on the charred pieces of the ragged glass sticking out.

Do you not fear that I might die from the incisions

That these cuts have produced

You are a drug that I’m trying to flush

But you have managed to become plugged.

Not wanting to move from the hole you have wedged full of memories.
