Example text

The main difference between me and a pedophile is that I don’t have a moustache. ” My back hurts today. Put an ice cube in your mouth for a little bit then lick my back. I cover myself in mirrors and I make no friends. When I make friends I cover them in mirrors. Every time I open my mouth I melt the things in front of me and every time I draw x’s over my eyes I fool other people into not introducing themselves. When you hear yourself saying something, make sure you 34 hear yourself as a complete enemy.

16. I came up to the dead body and I looked at it. I could tell where the nose was under the blanket and where the mouth was too. When I tried to imagine more, it became impossible. I wanted to lift the blanket but I knew how cold the body would be without the blanket. I didn’t feel anything else. I didn’t care. I still don’t care. Everyone is fine where they’re at. 38 A CAREER OF LOOKING TIRED When I wake up, I stay completely still and say, “Yayyyy” for as long as I can with one breath. Yesterday I acted like the lightbulb in my room was the sun and outside my door there were too many evil people waiting for me, so I didn’t leave.

28 MY LITTER-SKULL If you don’t kill your bad thoughts, your bad thoughts will kill you. It’s the same with your pets and the same with all your relatives I guess. 29 SOMETHING TELLS ME I’M GOING TO DIE IN AN ALLEY When your hand is a field it will make many things. When your hand is a field it will be covered in dirt. When you stand face to face with the things you’ve made but do not like, it will define you in some way. And when your hand is a field your tongue is a cloud. When there’s nothing left to say I will go to sleep and you will never hear from me again.
