Watching his dreams shatter like glass with me.

She knew as much as what was expected of her as packing peanuts on Mars
It looked suspiciously like the taste of aspritame or Wasabi
As Jake sits comfortably in Fayetteville, Arkansas
No, it wasn't wasabi, merely ginger
But the point here is how hot cold it is
What does "fleek" even mean?
If you sleep, then you're sure to fly
I once overheard people discussing "first world problems"- do they realize their ignorance?
The growing wasp of superficiality emerges
These days mirrors are for hearing
Until the girl becomes a hummingbird and skits away

But a man with gloves tends to overlook such small kindness until he realizes how cold it is
And he has left them at home.
