"My Main New Year’s Resolution Is to
Police My Own Thought-Crimes" by M; Margo


i try not to think too much because thinking always leads to depression

thinking about my life for too long feels like a form of self-injury

 

i think i like the idea of children more than i like children themselves

children tend to say whatever they think

 

i like when a child says something quirky & unexpected

like a kid in a miranda july story

 

me & you & everyone we know

is a pretty good movie but the trailer is ten times better than the actual movie

 

me & you & everyone we know

are all hurting but that’s okay because we’re here to help each other heal

 

or at least that’s what we try to do

i think


"All My Friends Are Dead // Everyone Is My Friend" by M; Margo


some friends left because of geography

some friends left because of ideology

 

some friends left because their favorite tv show was about to start

some friends left because the dogs of my music howled too loud

 

some friends left because i asked them to leave

some friends left just because

 

some friends left because i started being me

& they hated the color painted all over my fresh & happy self

 

some friends left because they found an easier type of love

some friends left because they wanted more of a challenge

 

some friends left because they wanted to kiss me & i never noticed

some friends left because our tongues touched

 

& the touching of our tongues felt good & electric in the moment

but then that closeness led to distance

 

some friends left because i was so desperately afraid of them leaving

some friends left because their bodies stopped breathing

 

some of those friends made their bodies stop breathing via acupuncture

some of those friends left on accident & some left on purpose

 

some friends left & then came back

some friends left & can never return

 

it’s hard to believe how many friends have stayed

may we all make it home safely
