things i havent eaten in ages i am starting to eat again


corn flakes, almond milk

cottage cheese and tomatoes, and apples, and unsweetened apple sauce


green tea. oolong if i feel awful. black as a treat, brewed until the red turns brown and the taste shrivels in my mouth

plain, black coffee i never gave up, and bananas have always been a necessity


vitamins, minerals, anything that will keep the rotting at bay. caffeine 200mg to be chased down with two glasses of cold water (exactly two)


oranges, cutie tangerines. stuff yourself sick


plain precooked hamburger patties, two-hundred and sixty per


the stillness, the dancing

pitterpatter heart of one six five


i said to my soul,

be still and wait without hope;

for hope would be hope for the wrong thing
