BABES, pt II.
oh, babe, I’m here all day every day for dragging (sometimes actually physically dragging) our known addicts from the emergency room to the clinic so that they don’t have to pay out of pocket for treatment we can do under the umbrella of their insurance. I’m here for making calls to CPS for the same eight families every few months, knowing that I’ll call again. I’m here for standing outside of the patient counseling room as a mother of three cries because she doesn’t have the money to pay her medical bills and my organization doesn’t care. I am there for guys who purposely show me their gang tattoos and scars, to get a reaction, to see me scared.
And only two of those things happened today between 9 and 5.
otherkin aren’t hard to love y’all just weird me out and I try not to talk shit about the ways other people choose to live their lives, I do, but you came into my inbox, darling.
I mean, maybe the kind of joke that gets told at a party, the one that falls horribly flat but the teller just keeps repeating the punchline like at some point it’ll stop making everyone uncomfortable, even as other people try to politely change the subject or “see” someone across the room they really have to speak to immediately, and everyone’s smiles get more and more brittle as they try to be both polite about it and deeply embarrassed for the teller’s sake.
maybe that kind of joke.
….I have very mixed emotions about this
Do this pls?
Got a curse I cannot lift
shines when the sunset shifts
when the moon is round and full
gotta bust that box gotta gut that fish
