Pretty Things & Clever Words

when someone says, ‘he’s right over there, but don’t look now,’ i never do.

it is hard to gauge what people actually want versus what they expect from you.

i try to be easy but i’m not.

i try to be self-sufficient but i still seek validation from people i don’t trust.

i try to be a grown woman but my mom is sending me a box of tea in the mail because she worries about me.

i try not to think about a person who is far away but i think about him all the time.

i think about everyone else too.

we are lucky if we get one minute of quietness a day, and if we do, we never remember it.

i only remember the talking that i watch other mouths make at me.

i only remember the grime on the fingers of homeless people asking for change.

i only remember shaking my head and wringing my hands.

i only remember that i’m still comparing myself to the people who made fun of me in middle school.

i only remember telling him to choke me because we would both like it. 

i don’t remember the silence but i think it’s supposed to be that way.

i reach for things after i notice they are across the room and i am too high to stand.

i reach in general because once again i am in desperate need of attention.

i categorize people into who i am avoiding and who i want to be the only person available for.

luckily, there are very few people left.

luckily, here we are.

yes, i am falling asleep alone tonight.

yes, i am here, how may i help.

no, thank you.

it’s true.

you are the new you in my poems.

“True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure - the greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation, the truer the choice to the character’s essential nature. But this? Using scissors to cut off the tip of a slice of pizza? I don’t know what this is. ”
― Robert McKee, Story: Substance, Structure, Style and the Principles of Screenwriting

in terms of new launches, brands tend to release their alerts the same way — press release or press release — but adriano goldschmied tried something new with this short film. in it, ballerinas plié and brisé ‘til their hearts’ content, fully demonstrating the breadth of stretch featured in the denim brand’s new contour 360° jeans.
