Astro Advice – Sarah Bridgins
I don’t know if it’s possible to live
off of Costco cookies and grocery store sushi,
but I’m willing to die trying.
Being a grown up means
using your tax refund to buy stuffed animals,
and the perfume you wore in high school.
Being best friends means
liking the same drugs.
Adopt a scorched earth
policy with those you once loved.
Sow your heart with salt
when they retreat.
Go blonde, fuck it
what can you afford to do?
