these cigarettes will kill 
me, but only if
i don't do it first. 

(inhale, breathe, hold, exhale. then concentrate on the scenery. feel the smoke on your tongue and think about how you're killing yourself, when in reality, you're already dying.)

we're all going to
die, so what's one
day less? it seems like an
honest bargain to me,
but then again, you should never
listen to a word i 
say, because i am
a class A fuck up 
(or so they say). 

see, i'm either too fat
or too skinny,
much too heart wild
for any man too marry. 

("who would want to marry a girl like you? you're too stubborn," my father says. i am fifteen with purple hair and fire on my cheeks and my heart coiling away from my sleeve. 
"fuck anyone who wants to take anything about you away," my mother tells me when i'm nearly 16, with sad eyes and a worn out expectation.)

but i think i realize now
that i don't
care. 
for me i am good enough,
good in general,
and like my mom always told me
"look out for yourself, honey. 
someone has to."


took part of an older poem for the beginning

I really like the positive note you end this with.  Yes, be yourself!  Life is short.
