the theme was breakfast cereal. i wrote about my unwell/dying grandmother again instead. close enough.


the unfortunate truth about living
is that which keeps you alive will kill you.

your blood grows weary and slows,
and in slowing, your heart closes.

the unfortunate truth about dying
is you lose so much time while it’s happening.

spending hours counting the hours til it ends
and surely, it’s some sort of sick joke…

but i’m not laughing.
