if you love someone
you should love them forever
you should be able to jump into the arms
of your 5th grade teacher
or at least
remember how you jumped into them once

I am only one cobb salad away
from moving into a coyote den in the woods
always just one cobb salad away
from sailing to Iceland 
on an inflatable mattress
that was liberated from Wal-Mart
in 2007

I want my death to be felt in the wind
I want the mall to be closed for a day
I want a milk truck driver
to rest his hat against his chest
and not know why it feels so heavy
in his hands

today some guy told me
take care, kid
like he was Indiana Jones
and I was a native

today a horseback riding looking woman
told me that she won’t forget the little guy
when she finally hits it big

I had a dream I won five hundred bucks
on a scratch ticket
five hundred bucks
only five hundred bucks
it was a dream

i hope if you ever dream about me
it doesn’t fuck up your whole day
i hope you eat your bagel in peace
and you can enjoy your lemonade

i hope i always stay a person
that i never become a fish
that i never become the sliver of tree
that touches the saw
that gets ripped apart
and never gets to become a table
for some ugly family to eat pie off of

i’m sick of telling people who eat my donuts that it’s chill
i’m sick of paying what you’re supposed to for an eighth
i’m sick of people’s birthdays
i’m sick of the running into my dentist
at Arby’s being the best part of my week
i’m tired of sharks being praised all the time
they are eating all our shrimp

lay me down in a river of dogs
let me pat a dog without another dog getting mad
let me be the mother to you all
let me know you all
let me pat you
all dogs be here
always be here
all dogs everywhere
dogs all the time

stop comparing nature
to your goddamned hdtv
at least think you appreciate clouds when you look at them
at least see them there doing nothing 
just being clouds like that’s enough

i was going to start looking for jobs today but then i ate lemonade yogurt out of a tube and it was so wretched that i have to cancel everything for the next 3 years.

(full disclosure: the yogurt was a brand for babies and probably not for grown adult humans. and also i stole it. from a toddler that my sister babysits sometimes. and also i was never going to even pretend to look for jobs today for even a second. idk, i’m swimming in self hate over here.)

reminder: all of this to protect one killer cop

Today my laptop charger started sparking and I ignored it because laptop chargers are expensive and also the danger of my computer either short circuiting from all the electricity shooting around it’s ports/the danger of my bed catching fire really heightened the experience of checking my websites. Sadly, the charger eventually kind of burnt apart and now I’m charger-less and have to wait for a new one to be sent from China and the shipping was free which means it’s being skateboarded to my house and my battery is at 9% so basically I’m gone forever. I wish you the best of luck in the future with all your endeavors and stuff. god speed!

NEW BLOG ALERT!

Vaughn Dutch. A Vince Vaughn Von Dutch photoshop blog. Immediately the worst thing I have ever done with my time on earth.

the Acrostc poems for the residents in my grandmothers nursing homes are something

I kind of have a crush on your brain, and subsequently therefore on you?
christopherlindstrom christopherlindstrom Said:

aw thanks!  I’m not really keen on my brain because most of the time, it’s busy eroding away all of my self confidence and hope, and also it makes me remember spiders way too often. like every 7 minutes or so. it’s exhausting.

but yeah, i’m pretty alright. Any 26 year old who still drinks energy drinks has to be at least a little bit cool. and thanks for message, I’m sure you’re a lovely person and could probably be president one day if you wanted to be!

so i’m gonna try harder to post stuff more consistently and generally be a better, more social internet person. Like if I’m gonna be such a slug in real life then I should be a little more lively on the information highway, idk. 

my time is pretty divided between working at that gas station, working on poems about that gas station, and working on aegir mag. we’re still in the process of reading through submissions and we got a lot of rad stuff and it’s all really exciting but also stressful and scary but also cool. 

so yeah, i’ll try to be online more and msg me if u wanna talk murder she wrote or boy meets world, the only two things in the world.

saw this monstrosity on the way to the bank today.
