i want it shattered

but can’t afford another seven years


so i’ve lain down the hammer

to strike these keys


and write into my funhouse mirror.

“sometimes we have the absolute certainty there’s something inside us that’s so hideous and monstrous that if we ever search it out we won’t be able to stand looking at it. but it’s when we’re willing to come face to face with that demon that we face the angel.”
