I say if you don’t come over
I’ll fucking kill myself
. Only
It’s in text and I say fudge, accidentally.
Incidentally, the fish tank
Breaks at the exact same time
And I can only think about
How maybe water should never
Be kept inside of anything
With a lid. How all of the tiny
Molecules have been fighting
For months without telling
Me. I just wish they hadn’t
Escaped all over my books
And those stupid robots
I’ve been collecting. Trying
To impress you.
Did it work?

Gah! Again, loving it. It's got a Postsecret feel to it, which you might love or hate, but hey, I think it's super :)

I never dug robots much, but this is art, which I dig. I detect lots and lots of heart and art in this and hurt.
