Pill-popper
street-walker.
President.
Both live only as long
as their legacies.

Committing
life
to paper
is difficult when it constantly
unfolds.
If we create something eternal in art,
then it is a contradiction
of reality.

‘Smile,’
a man once told me,
‘and the world will wonder
what you’re up to.’
I frown because
I fear
what the world is up to.
