Manifesto

I like boys with big eyes and broad shoulders. Boys who look older and are 3 inches taller than me. I like boys with soft voices and nice smiles and pretty hands.

I like to use words in a way they're not supposed to be used.

And sometimes...I like improprieties..



..impulses..

and insecurities.
I like putting two periods to imply a pause, because two periods have more emotion than 3.

I like to sing things an octave lower than they should be.

I like to look at the ground when I walk - Except for in the library,


where I walk with my head


up in a proud sort of


manner, suggesting I have


confidence..



Even though the



librarian thinks



I'm a terrorist.

I like suggestions.

I like to make crude jokes about death and incurable diseases..


which ultimately lead to


death.
I like lined paper and brightly colored mechanical pencils.
I like the word 'Manifesto'
because I feel there's some
sacred emotion within it...
Though I'm not entirely sure
what it is.


Yet I DO know what it


ISN'T.

I like letting things overtake me to the point where I'm not there.. Yet everything continues out of repition.

I like conspiracies and pointing out the faults in people who are popular.


I don't like having friends.
In fact..


I HATE having friends.

But I like boys with big eyes.
