dry spots

the parts that bleed.”

August

  2. I love ‘You got shanghaied into a gig as the Grim Reaper because the afterlife was running low on skilled social workers?!” from A SemiDefinitive List of Worst Nightmares. It’s less deep and more funny though. I also love al the poems from Beautiful Mess.
