Random Poem:


emo glasses & painted nails
new hair cut with a bad pair of sissors
holes in all the shirts, for the thumbs
floopy shoes & big paints
now you make noise when you walk
hating your own kind
while loving a few
the minority is best
while suffocating I utter
my favorite word
in the whole world
