It's much easier not to read this than to read it. Actually, it would require infinitely less effort, so my advice is definitely don't read it. If you're like me, though, you have a fear of time and its effects, and think you can murder it in little increments by using it amiss. If that's the case, then this is it. It's yours. The result of 100-ish sleepless nights arranged in some unruly manner, a labyrinth of sparks and odd ideas that might not amount to much in the end but once seemed entirely profound. These are a few of the words that have been scurrying around the dimly-lighted alleyways of a small nobody's imagination,  tearing up the floor and throwing spray paint on the walls.  Here is something of my selfish introspection, for your self, for your inspection. It is your scythe to hold, to sweep against the sands of time. Imagine that they do not shift back faster than you sweep.

But, also, enough of that pretentious idiocy. This is a rough-around-the-edges poetry book, not a freakin' work of art.

Special thanks to Conner, who makes me do things that I love doing, which I would otherwise not do, because I am an idiot. And for the cover art. What, you think I made that? Please.

Maybe it's  my accent, @AbstruseTAG  read this and tell me if I'm wrong.
I just wanted to say thank you for being a great author - this book is so soulful, inspiring and real, and it's such a refreshing read - well done

Pretty the only thing I understood 😂 but I guess it was a good writting! 😄 Just can you explain the main subject to a lost french girl like me ? It's too poetic to get it, but I love poetry though... So let me understand your words please ! I will be happy if you would like to do so 😄
Only the first line in and I already know I'm going to love this.
It has so much meaning and even then im pretty sure it has much more. I love it.
