Maybe one day there will be someone who will make me hallucinate. Or maybe not. But I hope whatever makes you see colors and hear music and all the things that make your brain happy is exactly what you want.

How's that going for you. Your poetry suggests some wondrous hallucinations.

I thought that I was no longer prone to hallucination.

Because you grow out of it. You stop seeing things.

And feeling things that are too intense to be real can't be.

Real or otherwise. They can't be.

Simply I thought I had put away childish things.

Her mom asked if we had eloped.

What are you? Teenagers?

I didn't think I could be, but yeah, ma'am. I guess so.

I was chasing the wrong dragon.

She is a pharmaceutical woman.

She is a time machine.

I want to badge all three of these comments. Came to the realization the other day that I don't want to be in a relationship (not that I am currently). But it's a weird thing to say to someone, how do you explain that to people. How do you know it's not just a defense.

It's not just a defence. It's 100% true, until it isn't.

.......isn't that a binary?

lil  ·  2548 days ago  ·  link  ·  

"is" creates problems. Every "is" should be replaced with something more tentative and conditional.

It might not just be a defence. It might be 100% true until it no longer seems true.

How does that sound?

    How does that sound?

Depends what the definition of the word "is" is.

Yes, I was channelling Bill. This is for the kids who weren't around in 1998.
