In Box













I prefer silence
to messages
offering advice,
telling me
to just do
as I've been told,
work hard, die soon,
before I get too old.
I'll text myself instead,
post to some future date,
reminding myself
not to end up dead,
being sure to copy
everyone who told me
how to live,
who to love,
how much I really need
to give,
so I could be
more like them.
