2013 work pic (2)

(no subject)

A friend of mine, wuttd, is teaching himself to write. Not, like, to spell words and write letters, but to write fiction and poetry and things like that. Something he wrote recently was really especially good, and I thought I'd repost it.

to become like a metropolis
thus aspires small towns everywhere
small towns with an inferiority complex

but being a metropolis comes with a price
you sell your soul to the likes of nike
or coca-cola
just look at tokyo
is that what you want?

there are small towns that would
vigorously nod their small town heads
and enthusiastically say YES!
