Ethan: Ok boys are you ready?
Francis: what is THIS! What are we doing?
Simon: No dad. Not again. I’m not helping again.
Ethan: someone has to read the instructions. Who’s my helper?
Simon: I don’t think you’ve learned your lessons from the other two beds we put together…you’re a writer, you should just leave your bed in the floor.
Francis: according to the instructions and your comprehension…frustration…you’re a Virgo…this will take you a decade.

Ethan: Yeah, but, this time, will be different…

Francis: I don’t know how to tell you this…but we don’t think so.

Bleeding ink #1,448

Talk about

Your doomesday state of mind

All the colour from the sunrise

Fades…

Worn through

Bleached out

I’m cut open

Like the emptiness inside of this room

——-

She says

Tell me again

How I’m too much

And never enough

And

The way we landed

From sky high

To these trenches

——-

They said we would always have ….

And they said

Even gods and angels

——

The hurricane is coming

How hungry will you be

Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of stew

Jacob wrestled God until morning

——-

It feels like a 100 lb anvil in the center of my chest

I keep looking for truth

Keep looking for you

But all I see

Is these rains

These days

This hurricane

Francis : So uh, did you have to work yesterday?

Ethan: What kind of stupid question is that?

Francis: I don’t know your schedule!

Ethan: ….

Francis: I know this, I have got to start going to bed earlierz. This staying up till 11pm is not working out so well. I look at the clock and hair balls, it’s 354ams !

I haven’t dried my collar, who’s fault is that!

I’m going to be late to start my olympics!

Ethan: is this the part where you, jump from every corner of the bed….flash from every room….back flip from the window seal? And then sit on my phone so I can’t hear my alarm go off, and cover my nose with your paws so I can’t breathe and wake up?

Francis: well, I mean, if you want to get down to the play by play.

Ethan: …

Francis: yes.

Francis Cash #3

Francis: I thought you were faking, or it was more of a suggestion… like when you read the warning label on blow dryers…

Ethan: when I say I can’t eat dairy, it means don’t order EXTRA cheese on a cheese pizza…

Francis: ok so I’ll make it up to you with some ice cream…double chocolates…

Ethan: (sighs) just make it death by chocolate…

Francis: Oh look…they have that too. I’ll call it in…

Francis: Mmm Well that sounds healthy and nutritiously delicious.

Ethan: Francis! Put that down!

Francis: What? Do we not eat desserts first?
