Growing Up Like Me

Before the Dawn

"Forgive"

beautiful hellhole

Compassionate Transgressions

Father's Goddess

The fear

I write because

what I am worth

not nourishing but present

Saturated

the comfort of a parent

Death club

It's not about the bike

Soapbox

my rabbit hole of paranoia

standing on one foot on a rope, on a boulder, balanced on the back of turtle

helium party balloon that follows you from room to room

When those odds felt easy

Ping Pong
