The churches there, built to emerge
from the blind corners and closed niches
of the quarter’s alleys,
were said to have been modeled
Look. I still know and believe plane travel is one of the safest forms of transportation AND I’m always kind of amazed our stupid little ape selves...
I might start crying at work today, so that’ll be fun.
Fuck I don’t have enough money for anything. I don’t think I can afford to buy a monthly transpass before August starts so I’m not sure how I’m...
