- Europeans: I drove forty minutes to the Netherlands for some groceries and then I popped into Germany to see some of my relatives before driving back home.
- Americans: I was in Florida, I drove for nine hours, now I'm still in Florida.
the poet at the grocery store
spat about how everyone compared love
to a wet battery
and not enough people
compared it to
when the world ends, he claimed,
I’ll be chain smoking cigarettes
in my thousand dollar bathtub
while the rest of you sing songs
about electric Goddesses arising
from the pits of Hell itself
I’ve been there you know, he said,
I’ve had tea with the Devil and made
love to his wife and let me tell you
love is a wet battery"
sometimes I forget that Americans have to pay for university upfront like what the fuck is that are u guys ok
