Kori Haffmun

(Born the day began / Earth)

Describing myself through similes

I am like
a word on a piece of paper
that guy whose cell-phone rings
the scary parts of some horror movie
a person with amnesia except I remember where to go if a space alien attacks my city
(to the imaginary shelters of that one place with that one guy)

I am as
lazy as an old dog...sometimes
happy as a child who drank 15 cans of orange soda
Happy as a baby on christmas

Need I say more?
Well I don't feel like it so have a nice life

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
