just got here
saving you a table

you on your way?

are you coming?
You forget what you want to remember
and you remember what you want to forget

it’s fine if you can’t make it
it’s just people are starting to head home
but if you’re on your way
Nobody wants to be here and nobody wants to leave
I just thought you said you were going to try to make it
that’s all
it’s fine
I’ll have another birthday next year so it’s no big deal
yesterday is all that does count
What else is there?
Your life is made out of the days it’s made out of
Nothin else

okay well

Whatever in creation exists without my knowledge
exists without my consent

you tell em that
tell who?
tell em
tell everything that exists that i don’t know about yet
it’s not allowed

i don’t know if that’s
i don’t know if i can do that
There is no forgiveness for women.
A man may lose his honor and regain it again.
But a woman cannot. She cannot.

you know
real shame, that

what’s the most you ever lost on a coin toss
i dunno
five bucks maybe
no reason

is the fire real
is what fire real
is the fire real? are you carrying it?
what fire are you talking about
the fire inside you
where is the fire
oh it’s just a little fire
kept it small
kept it hidden

you know what
the freedom of birds is an insult to me
where are you going
you know where
please don’t do anything to birds
I’m coming over
Carry the fire
you’ll see
