Hair tumbles like water from a stream
But sometimes clean
I would’t taste it
Let my lips grace it
But I might run my hands through it
Stick my feet in it
Let the mud congeal my toes
Like sedimentary cement
There are fossils here
I tell myself
Dead cells like dead shells
Waiting to be buried
Tied up in a bun
Like barns in a whirlwind
Somewhere in Oklahoma
Where erosion runs its race
And dusty sunlight kisses your face
And dirt from the air stains your hair
And leaves freckles in its place
All water is contaminated with human waste
But so is your hair and I accept that without filter
Into the webs of my fingers
Just searching for their meals
I am hungry for you
Venom is only poisonous in large amounts
And so is sea water, salty from the ocean
But there is too much of your hair for this to ever be fair
now that im in the space mood i’d like to remind each and every one of you that NASA drew a dick on mars. we drew a dick on another planet. that is mankind’s legacy.
THIS IS AN ACTUAL PHOTO OF THE SURFACE OF MARS. PLEASE NEVER FORGET THIS.
reasons I can relate to a possum:
-tired & unkempt, smells weird
-emotions ranging from “displeased” to “existential scream”
-no work ethic
-lies around looking dead when overwhelmed
-will eat trash & live amongst trash if left to own devices
-sometimes you feel bad and feed it a sandwich
Capitalism loves science when it’s used to develop new technologies or new means of extracting resources.
Capitalism is indifferent to science when it works on things which can’t be directly commercialized.
Capitalism really hates science when it investigates environmental degradation, or when it points out that the economy is running headlong into a brick wall of resource limitation.
