this dissertation

signs that show I’m about to bring it

but just not there yet


scrubbing the bottom of pans,

scrubbing the stove drip pans with the

scrub mommy.

making yogurt..

getting my nails done

this time, press-on manicure kit, they’re called aurora

and they’re in the shape of a coffin..

I tried to file ‘em but the scrubbing irritates them

and they come off

they also make writing difficult

that may be why I’m wearing them
