“Sure, I can talk like you, but I choose not to, It's like an art, you know? Picasso had to prove to the world he could paint the right way, before he goes putting both eyes on the side of a face... See if you paint wrong because that's the best you can do, you just a chump. But you do it because you want to? Then you're an artist...You can take that to the grave and dig it up when you need it.”
― Neal Shusterman, Unwind


Hope is a dreadful thing.
It grazes you
Like a ripple on the surface of the water
Or a bullet’s smooth brush against your neck.
It teases, then chokes
In sick repetitive motions
Until the dread creeps back in
And your thickened reality produces tears,
That finally lull you to sleep.
