First date
hurdles / dreams
The slow now
Explaining my depression to my mother a conversation
What i told the doctor
A story // my father moves to another country & there's no way to say i'm sorry if you aren't
Nature versus nurture
The loneliest sweet potato
That awkard moment
Better together, a Jack Johnson erasure
Magic trick 001
Untitled (i)
Untitled (ii)
So, I'm talking to depression
Girl beside you
A plain truth
Magic trick 002
Dear Beyonce (I)
How to unfold a memory // the kentucky heartbreak shuffle
House of cards a radiohead erasure
How to fold a memory
Gravity speaks
The other side of a memory
On releasing light
Magic trick 003
Poem from last august california trip // yearly maintenance
I press shuffle & Lauryn Hill comes on
Another plain truth
On the last gesture between us
Poem from the moment after you left for chimwemwe
On platonic love being a real thing
So my friend tells me she identifies as a mermaid
On keeping your damn feelings to your damn self
Unrequited in nine acts
Dear Beyonce (II)
Feed a fever, starve a cold
Poem from the beach trip
Girl behind you
What i told the doctor, the second time.
Last friday
Seven small ways in which I loved myself this week
Ode to sunday
Magic trick 004
It starts
Since I met you baby a Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears erasure
Seconds after bumping into him on the street
On getting over you for real
Magic trick 005
Follow-up a prayer / a spell.
