you’re probably going to worry about the wrong thing like bears or sodomites. so just don’t worry


taking my chances in bear country

remember which hand
you touched the door
remember the handi-wipes
remember that the fires burning
can be either a light to
follow back
or away

the fog rolls in

we’re walking in a
cloud now
