perpetual adolescence

I want a Wikipedia page, to begin with.
A space, however virtual, that will remember me
when I'm gone.
I also want–unironically–to be TikTok famous.
I want to instill envy in those
who would see me.
I want a Tumblr, filled with beautiful images of books, clothes, flowers, faraway countries.
I want to write words writers tattoo onto their skin.


Maybe one day,
I'll decide to stop living
for getting my name into the Books;
I'll stop trying to write in the sand.

I'll start living like an Italian–
eating, loving, howling with dogs at the moon
living like life is for joy (or family, or some synonymous Thing)
Maybe one day (tomorrow)
