SEEING A WOMAN COUGH TODAY MADE ME SENSE A VAGUE FEAR OF DEATH
BRANDON SCOTT GORRELL


a vague despair feels horrible

as a result of the nature of despair

all day i imagined myself customizing my blog

an hour and a half after i arrived at my laptop i was staring vacantly, refreshing gmail

last night i went to your house

two of your friends were there

i asked them questions

i feel we all attempted witticisms

everybody was trying to be funny

every time someone wasn't funny everyone felt weird

and you felt weird, definitely

people were talking for a long time, resultingly

i had a vague sense of victory, i think

i am at the library

people make many facial movements when they look at inanimate objects

such as computer screens

i forgot how to create impressive poetry

i feel worried about writing often

i think about a fat girl sometimes

there is a high chance i can predict the next two weeks with extreme accuracy

and that it would be easy for you to say something to me

that would cause my facial expression to become complex

and my brain to think 'say something, you're losing so hard'
