V.S. Ramstack

i heard these noises upstairs

 

the snow looked like a little case of teeth
this was something we decided was okay
did i mention they were perfectly symmetrical?


no one thought to ask
about the water bottle in the corner
ten feet from your mouth, ten feet from mine


i’m supposed to be at a baby shower
it wasn’t night nor was it dark
also a hundred years of people


the carrot who was a
man wore a dress i liked
sometimes i see him outside

my doorstep


-insert silly graph
-insert relevant time
-insert y axis & yr face


it rained again


no one copies my homework
no one gets on this bus
hi hello i am a jellyfish


tiny bag full of feeling
