Hope
 
I really hope that I don’t
love you until the day I die slash does it ever snow at open sea?
If we were losers, we could all use our beauty.

 
 

The Child who Knows how to ask:
 

What is the likeness between man and machine? What is good what is mad what is sad
what is an opinion what is an onion what is a muscle? What is MUSIC

How is You still alive?
How is the layers of fish a thing?
How can you unzip something
ahead of you?

What is a heart
WHAT IS A FIRE
what is a bad idea.
