" Read some Proust today. Notice the shape of leaves. Watch them in their arguments again wind currents. Fall in love with ancient masters you will never meet. Refuse to worship Hemingway while enjoying his vibe. Stand up straight. Ignore the voice in your head telling you your life is pointless. You aren’t a point anyway.

" Stop singing
your heart out
to strange men whose lips can kiss love in multiple tongues
every time you ask them to spell loyalty. "
