a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.
me when buying something over $10: do i need this? do i need any material objects? will this matter when i face the great abyss?
Write drunk, edit sober.
I can’t abandon
the person I used to be
so I carry her
one day we will live in a house
with a room made entirely of pillows
and I will swim to you through the downy fluff
your body a campfire next to mine
and I’ll warm my hands in the fire
for the rest of time
