i have now heard what a dial-up modem sounds like
when slowed down 700%

haunted houses
y’all gotta take note of that shit

these days
the golden rule is followers > following
and i low-key

hate myself for caring

yet that still doesn’t stop me
from checking my phone
8,437 times each minute


i still remember listening
to the radio in ’97
mixtape at the ready

waiting waiting

to press record at the exact moment
NIN’s Closer began
