secrets dreams and nice things

this piece was constructed from notes people left at the lunar launch party. some are secrets, some are dreams, some are nice things. all are words. because it’s the words that matter. everything begins and ends with words. it’s the words that hold the power. it’s your words that hold the power. you gave us your words and here we give them back to you. separately your words mean something, together they mean something else. collaboration. anonymity. creativity.

religion is keeping me apart from the love of my life.

what is the point in religion?

redundant and hateful now.


i read a fanfic about ateez (a k-pop group) in the apocolypse (i’m drunk don’t spellcheck) so i dreamt about that and i ended up surviving because i smothered myself with zombie guts so they all ignored me which means that we can rely on me surviving zombies i guess???
