i really need to learn to watch what i say
sitting at my computer writing,
i am texting my girlfriend
we have emojis to represent that we are working:
a bumble bee and a pen on paper.
she writes poems,
and i write short stories.
i sent her the emojis earlier. i didn’t want to
because i prefer talking to her,
but want to
i told her that i am expanding an old character of mine
and using my shitty life
to build on his life
“you think your life is shitty? :(”
i wait to respond
