Inspired by Hermann Hesse and Vonnegut


Living among the little people is a lot like like living on a sinking ship.
They conscript themselves to the body, always feeling as they should.

Sweet little bottle of our soul

Care too much for the other, going too far to please their need
I satisfy my nature with my wounds, always seeking the grand old Granfalloon

Sweet little bottle of our soul
