things are never going to be the same
it doesn’t matter now
born on the wrong planet
why I struggle
careful, circumscribed, discreet
one of the dream team
the biggest supporter, who benefits the least
the Doors are Closing

everything is a shade of gray
mega-pointless life
went into the future
wandering around somewhere
another timeline we could have taken
only in art, does life have the most meaning
too social. like burnout social
play the drums; hold the remote
Benzene Tacos

the rising tide of culture
alchemy to chemistry and living forever
the bottom of the video game world
dead god, lost god
the diary of a sh*tposter
AWPed into the ground
the wrath god
a Dark Messiah
a fierce spirit, a fierce daemon

call down god, from the cloud
look, another beautiful follower
Djinn-spirits, Asura war
still a human, not yet a god
disciples and gods
reproducing the Temple of Heaven
the Realm of the spirits, animals, and the gods
the sky opens up and the angels cry out
you don’t have to find the return

it’s not the same
we are not the same
the myths and the lies that we tell ourselves
valets and jesters

second memory

as useful as the 10 o’clock news
elephant bread
circumscribe, routinize
Bad Advice Eonni
the immortals of your world
Invaders of Eden
the AWPer
Thousand-year-old sage
Empty B Tray

fake, dummy accounts
Midsummer’s night
Geography Hero
it’s the attack of the ex
sci-fi yuri manga
the Answer is in the Question
fast-forwarding through history
potato sauce

quickened into one giant thunderclap
what was lost and what was found
AWPed to death
viruses and livestock
inexorable Answer, intractable Question
primordial Eldritch squid god
flashbang city
the wrath of heroes
fade away, like the stars, at dawn

reloading in the scope
selling convenience
blue-water cargo cult
societies racing into tomorrow
still stuck in the ’90s
from Constantinople to Venice
bouncing around in history
King Solomon could see the future
nade the smoke
