It is not June 2nd

I am not a person

I am a luminous presence, or


or bullshit.


It is not that I don’t

believe in you

or that I don’t believe in myself,

it’s that there is no

single place

it feels I can really hold onto, anywhere


Like I could be perfect

and write a code of

my own behavior

but there is nothing I will be able to do

that can stop that code

from being broken,

or becoming irrelevant


I just want to be other people

I think it’s time I started being

other people
