Consider definition: a kind of sand,
congested with shards of shell, small fossils,
eggs, bodies that squirm & bodies
that prevent squirming. You are right to argue.
Close your hand at the corner of your hip
& launch illegible questions. This all

Piss frustration into the bowl
so spitefully, as if gd’s face lurked in piping.
Find wilderness in numbers. Find the word
hidden even further in the forest.

I told her the sky
yes it is blue but look
all this is changing
that doesn’t mean better but
happy birthday chase, i love you, even though you are fucking neurotic
It is not easy being a bird, it is very hard and not many birds can do it

But it is lot’s of fun
Being a bird is my favorite thing to do
this is all true i know from experience and such
