My Decline

Shot Of The Day: November 19, 2017





QOTD:
I need to lead a dissipate existence
And play scratchy records
And enjoy my decline
With more divorce records, more distance,
more future, more culture
More!

Cure me of dreaming

And my ashes find a way beyond the fog
And return to save the child that I forgot
