Taco Bell, back in the day…


I [heart] tacos. Tacos are delicious.

Delicious tacos are what I [heart] the most.

Tacos with hard shells, tacos with soft shells.

I [heart] tacos.



How long ago was it? Ten years?

Fifteen years?

No, we’ll never be that


And when we reach for

A thought, for a love for some odd sense of the word

“care” thought, foreseen, forbidden

Forsaken and shaken





My mean older brother:


His name is Walter

This, we cannot alter.


Once when I was nine

He told me my mom wasn’t really mine


“You’re adopted” he said to me

If he was lying, I couldn’t really see.
