Kill Your Darlings (2013)
I never knew I needed curly-haired Dan Rad in my life.
for a second i thought this was a young J.J. Abrams
I didn’t know it was him at first.
This look really suits him well.
That last picture. Unf.
He’s dressed like Will Graham. Same glasses and everything.
“its getting hot in here so take off all ur clothes”
only holocaust kids remember this
you’re better than
no one understands you.
maybe nietzsche, or kerouac,
or, god forbid, bukowski
maybe you guys would
go get a drink and make fun
of all of the people
who like things.
everything that you don’t like
everything that more than a small
i love self doubt
self doubt is a good thing
self doubt makes me say fuck it
and do things i wouldn’t normally do
because what do i have to lose
i’ll say something dumb to the person at the cash register
i’ll smile at a stranger
i’ll post videos of me singing badly

on your eighteenth birthday you write a somewhat pretentious but overall harmless blog entry about the meaninglessness of ideas like adolescence and adulthood
on your nineteenth birthday you make a mix cd for yourself entitled “who cares”
on your twentieth birthday you go out to eat with your…
fuck time. it’s all skin
flakes and dust and shit under
the healthiest thing you did
in weeks was crying alone in your
did you know you can talk
to yourself and you can force
yourself to listen?
you can feel taller if you want to.
you can love the world
from afar and it means no less.
your feet are on the ground.
go do some good shit. forget about
time. you’re alive.
i still have no idea what
“two headed boy pt. 2” is “about”
but it doesn’t make a difference
when i’m on the freeway singing it
and crying along to the music
beauty is a thing
that doesn’t need anything
to mean it
it just happens when you decide
that you don’t want to die or
there’s too much good stuff
hidden throughout the bad stuff
for you to give up just yet
the sky is all purple
and it makes sense that way
everything is the worst and
everything is perfect
