The Wasteland

brain dump.

These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

—Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening (via rauchwolken)

Every president [since Truman] has spent more total real dollars in his last budget than in his first. Johnson increased spending by 38 percent. George W. Bush increased it by 53 percent, and even Reagan increased total spending by 22 percent.

we grab the pieces that we can get
whether they’re in barrooms or courtrooms
closets or coffee shops,
if they’re in honeymoons, dollar stores, hospitals
we hold on tight
because we feel like we’ve earned them
and
landing airplanes
can’t take them away,
slamming doors,
empty bottles,
empty pockets,
empty stares
can’t take us away

we belong right here

wherever you are

brightlightsloudnoises:

you
laid on the
floor,
your toes pointing due east
while I sat on the couch

you looked
destroyed,
abandoned,
and beautiful
and
all I
could think of to do was
to get more ice from the freezer

so I dropped a fresh cube in
each of our
red plastic cups…

and baby,
wherever you are,
if you’re having a hard time
I promise that
if you can make it through
the night

the morning will be better

silent

brightlightsloudnoises:

we have our
private, invisible
medals
that hang
heavy
between our shirt
collars

and when we
bend to pour
more coffee
they don’t make
much
noise

so true.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is for beginners you don’t even know.
