What is the relationship between an entrance and an exit, I ponder; maybe it's that they are both holes, openings for saliva to embody its gooiness; spitting absolutely fantastically on the sidewalk;
stranger man cowering in the corner at my display of manliness; threshold for movement on the precipice, its inertia calling out for something to egg it on
egg it on
What is the relationship between a hole and a grave, I wonder; perhaps it’s its possibilities its capacity to hold and be held and consumed and cup in its hands a certain temporality of endings, encased in dirt and mud and blood and that strange queerness of beginnings that are often found in death and decay, tombstone quickly withering away my parents barely deadname me now,
What a win.
