    XXXXVIX. (xoxo)

    for what reason
    did I wipe every single tear
    of your self-pity?

    did I trap you in the ruins of your own heart
    by telling you there would be no rain?

    XXXXVIII. (her)

    she scratches my walls
    she yells me awake
    but so long as we
    shall share our fate
    she'll be my ghost
    that I cannot hate

    XXXXVII. (libra)

    variable as the weather when we are together
    yet discovery prone when we are alone

    despite our strong constitution,
    to be less than of two minds,
    there seems no solution,

    but if it means losing all that is fun
    I'd rather be two than to only be one

    XXXXVI. (clerks)

    we sell clean water in plastic bottles
    but desire sold by a cam model
    is where we find
    the moral crime

    XXXXV. (taurus)

    Cursed is the one who
    told the bull it could not fly.

    Stubborn as the mountains
    that rise and challenge
    the blue skies.

    Providing hope,
    for those who wait,
    the bull waits its turn
    at an airline gate.

    Cursed is the one who told
    the bull it could not try.

    the afterlife

    XXXXIV. (will)

    I imagine that you saw this,
    and perhaps to find solace,
    you continued on reading,
    your heart proudly beating,
    I might have envied that...

    But nestled within these pages,
    life begins its next phases.
    It is refreshing that my reflection
    has been found by curious intention,
    so to you I doff my hat.

    For in your eyes I dare to think,
    that perhaps I have assured myself
    some afterlife in ink.

    XXXXIII. (prophet)

    Snakes preach like prophets,
    selling advice by the letter,
    'Just hustle and heed me,
    and your life will be made better'.

    'You reap what you sow', they say,
    to crowds of men in tiny pews,
    while their merch is tirelessly made
    by tiny hands in crowded rooms.

    XXXXII. (legacy)

    They think themselves gods
    after a year or two of fame,
    while daddy's gold fills the mold,
    casting their stage name.

    You can be born with talent,
    but your body's an empty hole,
    until Vogue prints your glossy pout,
    and grants you that glittering soul.

    XXXXI. (episode)

    enter my private melodrama:
    is this what it's like to be born?

    Crying but not inconsolable,
    shaking but not cold,
    in pain but growing,
    wistful but not old.

    XXXX. (lows)

    I am not myself today
    and I don't think I ever will be again.

    who should've been more bold? me.
    who should've been more steadfast? me
    more honest? me.
    more, more.
    me, me.

    I'm growing.
    I'll do better.
    But today I am not myself.
