Bloody cigarettes and purple rocks.
Climbs so steep they make you feel soft.
Sulfuric pools and clouds of flies.
Is this all really necessary to feeling alive?

Food so bad that your soft guts rot.
Earth so cold t... is it working?
What?... Do you feel alive?

Mountains so tall t... Do you feel alive?
That lake made me feel something.  You lie.
Fine, no. It's not working. I've felt nothing. 
                 But I've tried! Isn't that worth something?

You wait for a response. There is none.
You begin to cry.
