Imbalance Editorial No. Two

Teetering

Sediment and sidewalk teeter
at every moment. Watch
your step. Open the manhole
and pour in a bucket of light.
Seeming to be one thing
often means something else
entirely. Yellow raincoats contain
androgyny. A change purse
is also a fence. Tell me,
is a conductor still a conductor
once trading a stick for a broom?
Sludge turns to stone turns
to stardust. If the boxer stops
boxing and the waddler
stops waddling and the tap-
shoes stop tapping, then, my
friends, we might become
salt water. Keep up the box
and waddle and tap. But scrape,
too, and see what plaque protects
and conceals. Try to define
permanenceโ€”try, and the birds
and bark will deride such
presumption. How embarrassing.
Against purple pavement,
body and cosmos collide
and dissipate into copper coins,
broken bottle shards. Lavender
sprigs in concrete gutters.

AJ
420 Friendly ๐Ÿƒ | Lo Fi Beats ๐ŸŽต | Netflix and Chill ๐Ÿฟ

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. In the spirit of the holiday, he's taking a break from lighting up to look for someone to light up his life.
