Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane
Ugh yes I’ve been searching for this
what the hell this is freaking incredible
We are the American Hooligans.
We come from milk crate furniture
and empty alcohol bottles as tasteful decoration.
We are the party when you can and
fuck it, I’m gonna have a drink because
sometimes Tuesdays are too hard.
We come from home-made tattoos
and we’re made to find homes in
ourselves when we have forgotten that
shelters are harder to build alone.
This is that,
free pizza here, free samples there,
and spend the rest of the money on
cheap beer and textbooks.
sun doesn’t set the standards on when
to be awake because we find that there
are a lot of flowers out there that look
the most breathtaking in starlight. —Alex Dang!
Needed this simple reminder to keep me going.
Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are. —Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
I need time for me, just me, no one else.
