let’s use snow for seasoning

flakes dangling down, I watch them

crawl up, unhindered, pick yourself

up off the ocean floor, a blue crab sprints

into your outreached hand, and there’s mud

streaked all over your face, covering the dimples,

no, sinking in, a sinkhole, swallowing the very last

bite of tomato soup, fluorescent lights blind,

car horns and headlights shine, the raven pecks

at the sheen of aluminum foil, rain turns

into icicles, dangles down, drips down

 into puddles of melted grilled cheese, smile,

  the folds in your eyes, they’re missing, posters

 get plastered, the lights flicker, dim, you dim-

witted boy, get your head out of your ass,

your eardrums shatter, the icicles break

into little flakes that get sprinkled on

your cereal, a garnish for the morning.

420 Friendly 🍃 | Lo Fi Beats 🎵 | Netflix and Chill 🍿

Aj (short for Anthony James, but please don't call him that) is one cool cat. This former pre-med-turned stoner now spends his days getting blitzed, playing Xbox, and carrying around his skateboard (which he never actually rides). Although his intense anxiety made him switch majors, he never switches up his self-medication regime, involving a quarter a week.
