Teengers In A Small City
(my friends as types of people)
thunderstorm: messy hair, wit, insomnia, an unholy amount of coffee, scraggly handwriting, books about art, quick-tempered, mysterious, passionate, bright laughter, chaotic family breakfasts, angry outbursts, puddles, nightmares, intense love, popcorn, reckless driving, music turned all the way up, turmoil, films by Jean-Luc Godard, becoming engrossed by good art, storm clouds, mist, unkempt beauty, rambling conversations, crumpled cash, libraries, half-finished paintings, charcoal on your fingers, cracked nail polish, ambition.
static buzz: couch surfing, a mop of curly hair, trying your best, stale pizza, Kurt Vonnegut books, going to parties for the food, local band concerts, shoplifting, skateboarding down a winding road, blue sky melting into twilight, falling in love with strangers, talkative, witty, hilarious, oversized jackets, overly complicated piano music, dark eye circles, a cynical romantic, clumsy, easily distracted, salty ocean water, soaking in the sun, self-deprecating jokes, murder mystery novels, film noirs, constantly reminding your friends that you love them.
jar o’ honey: scribbled poetry stanzas at midnight, green tea, unrequited love, wilting daisies, freshly baked rosemary bread, melodrama, humming a melody from an old piece of music, record stores, dependable, stubborn, sweet, smiley, manipulative, the smell of fresh lavender, daydreams, giggling about sex, cinnamon gum, secrets, pockets full of junk food, a visionary, loving philosophy, naming your potted plants, quiet evenings, feeling strangely empty at night, kissing your friends on the cheek.
