aaand here comes my love for comic characters
you are wires and circuits.
electricity makes you feel alive
coffee drying in gloppy dregs in abandoned cups
white ceramic grimy from workshop dust
you don't have friends.
so you make them
out of your last sleepless hours of useless university
pushing yourself to the edge, brink that only youth can pull you back from
you create them and they have faulty programming
and it's your fault
you know it is
but you don't care
you keep them that way.
(having them around, endearing and clumsy
faulty, faulty, faulty
makes you feel a little less broken.
and at the very least,
broken things are familiar.)
(broken things are fixable.)
(nice that sometimes there's a reminder of something you can fix.)
(if you chose to.)
the world would be more bearable
you would be better
if only you could be circuits and wires
