Wallpaper Smile by Pwen Twistl

i'll never tell my friends when i'm in Doctor Strange pain

upfront

because i know they too may be going through bullshit too

i don't want to add to the dumpster domino pile in this Twister board era

plus

i don't tell everyone or just anyone

it takes me time to anchor trust others

it takes me time to accordion open up

i have faced a lot of Goosebump nightmares

i have faced a lot of cold blooded anaconda crazy ass terror laughs and stares

i have like yourself been scarred by Zamboni grizzly bears

i have faced King Kong nonsense across the desert

plus

i still am in a space surrounded by packs of cigarette smoking wolverines

i still am surrounded by skunk day iron showers

yet

i still am here

because love still exists here

perhaps not everywhere but its here despite my Avalanche City pain and perhaps yours

there are so many dynamite things in this world

miracles



despite the Dodo violence

despite the tragic

if you push

if you alarm clock

Wake Up

swoosh

if you keep tugging at that Excalibur brain blade

you"ll eventually

King Arthur remove what makes you afraid


yes, you"ll find the Hansel & Gretel breadcrumbs of magic

yes, you"ll bake your ciabbata bread

yes, you can conquer the Hellboy demons that are in your heart and head

yes, you can...


even without me

because you have a superpower

to see what's lovely

through

your cannoli passion


use

your way of spreading more Wonder Woman Superman starlight

across this planet


yeah

there won't always be rainbow days

but what and who we love often helps us combat the burnt toast days


holding onto moments

holding onto memories

forgetting the word frenemies


if you take the time to Thundercat focus on what you love

then

the howling aches

the mechanical rust

the 13 Ghost wounds

the Loki stabs

the wrinkles of tundra time

begin to fade away...


your story is just beginning

this

is not

THE END
