Epidermis (#5)

But I’m deranged in places that don’t exist loud enough.

Night Creatures

All the night Creatures crawled up to my desk ~ & I wondered… What Creature am I in their language?

Colors

There are so many things to be addicted to- drugs, alcohol, cigarettes & people. But guess what my addiction is? Gasoline. I find myself sniffing the smell at a gas station every time we stop there.
