recycled carton

im so bad at telling you this or im so off course

as if a nematode became human
i try to express myself to beautiful people
beautiful! so much
more beautiful than me,
much much more. honestly.

once i had a dream
i poured my heart out
i said can we, will we, will you?

after,
when the scaffolding was well defined between us,
when the invitation i set out was heard but not honored,
not mirrored.

probably i make too much of things. wishes.
i am ridiculous. i know.
probably i am recyclable as an egg carton, or
even more so equally.
i wait for recognition and get none.
i pause and wait.
its because im cardboard. or bicarbonate of soda.
its because im lint.

i try to say
can we please
please
can we please just celebrate each other
and not drown in the world.
can we please!

silence.

i have to go to bed now.
i love you tho. you.
sleep soundly you. sleep.
i hope you are cozy.
i hope i am cozy too.

in a moment you and me,
we will be forgotten.
not even forgotten.
more than that.
we will be the absence of knowing.
there will be no one to know.
in a moment. we never existed.

i keep looking for someone who gets this,
someone who understands that
this is our moment of time, and that
together, we can create our own world
separate from this world of insanity.

im probably naive.
probably it is impossible.
so never mind.
i know im a nematode,
a puff of lint in a pocket,
a tangle of an eyelash of something real.
my beauty is nonexistent when i think of you.

Life of an urban witch #2

Recycling is fun! 

  • use tin cans or plastic bottles as plant pots
  • make tote bags out of old/ripped pillowcases (you could dye them and  draw/print/sew sigils or magical symbols on them)
  • use an egg carton to organize your gems/shells/crystalls

DIY crafts: PHONE CASE recycling milk carton

There’s these dried hashbrowns that come in little cardboard cartons, like milk for kids. You can get them at like Costco or other bulk stores. I know about them cause the military uses them.

they are magic.

Anything that you would want shredded potatoes for, you can use these. It’s shredded potatoes that have been dried (and maybe par-boiled? idk). All you do is open the carton (like you’re gonna drink it) and fill with hot water (minimum 120F, I have an electric kettle so I do that) and then close and let it sit.

You can use these to make hashbrowns, but I really like using them for other stuff. like latkes or casserole or tossing in soup. They’re PERFECT for things that involve frying, cause they come out perfectly reconstituted but not drippy.

And you don’t have to deal with the peels afterward. Just throw away or recycle the carton.
