Killian Donnelly (Jean Valjean), Shaq Taylor (1st cover Javert), Charlotte Kennedy (Cosette), John Lumsden (1st cover Marius), Alice Ellen Wright (1st cover Eponine), Hyoie O’Grady (Enjolras), Steven Meo (Thenardier), Jacqueline Tate (Madame Thenardier)

the one here is looking for someone to work late nights or early mornings during the summer!

i might work in a 24 hour laundromat!

i’m going to clean things and people will give me tips to fold and wash their laundry!

when no one is looking im going to bury my face in the clean laundry and smell it!

i won’t have any co-workers!

i will sit in the laundromat at 2 in the morning alone and smell things and listen to dryers!

i will listen to dryers!

from now on all of my paintings are going to be of laundromats and things inside of laundromats!

people will give me money to listen to dryers!

i will warm my hands in clean laundry that i will take out of the dryers when they are finished drying!

im buying a new bike!

with tires that aren’t rotting!

i won’t have to buy a car!

i ate sticky rice and bought you chocolate with no dairy in the chocolate!

i can ride my bike to the laundromat!

i can tie a box to the back of my new bike and put my cat in it!

i might work in a laundromat!

i will probably never work in a laundromat

I’m preparing myself for an extended period of loneliness
That will begin very soon I think
I’ve illegally downloaded two new depressing songs
I’ve placed a copy of Good Morning, Midnight under my pillow for easy reference
I’ve printed out the tablature for every Morrissey song I know so I can sing them to myself
Alone in my room
Just a few things are needed really
To make me calm
While I figure out a simple, clean, and effective way to kill myself,
With minimal stress for the person who has to find and dispose of my body
But I’ll probably never think of a way
Because I’ll probably never kill myself
I’ll just lie in my bed suffocating myself with my pillows
While listening to the four songs you said were your favorite
And maybe burn myself a little with the iron
On special occasions
And the next time I’m in a subway station,
I’ll stand a little further on the yellow line
Or maybe the next I’m at your apartment
I’ll try a little harder.

Stop staring at me.
My body is so small compared to the sun.
My heart is so small.
