a way to explore thoughts, usually first thing in the morning.


willpower is not a tool
in the toolkit of the one
whose brokenness most needs
a superpower like willpower.

or is it
the other way around?
either way,
it’s a frustrating, fucked-up mess,
and no,
i will not get over it
any more than
you will swim
the sea.
