rebel without a cause

i’m tired.

it’s this scene

&

this house

&

this mouse.

this music, this whiskey,

&

these spent cigarettes

soaked in broken

longneck bottles.

these half-hearted

wannabe hippie

nicotine dreams

all ashes now,

because we’ve got

this pet mouse here in rip city

who burned down our house

that we always called james dean

&

it wasn’t his fault really

but i’m actually kinda glad

because it’s time for me

to get the hell out of Portland.
