IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY, JUST SPIT IT OUT
Sheena Carroll (Pennsylvania)
i ate the moon and purged it 10 minutes later in a costco bathroom/making meteors that turned my home planet into gooey galactic dust/and you have the nerve to say, you don’t have to have an eating disorder/just, like, eat healthy food and do cardio/my heartbeat quickens/like you think/i don’t know this already/but when my stomach is filled with the solar system i am become god/and it feels so soothing and so damn awful
