Poetry ❖ Written by : Micah Flavin

sometimes i say oh no in advance, right when i wake up, before anything technically bad happens. one example of something bad is if the girl i love with every cell i have calls me while im on the toilet and leaves a voicemail saying that she can’t make it to my birthday party. i would cancel my birthday and cancel the season summer and then shrivel into a shrimp and toss myself in the sea.
