She Is an Artist | Élyse Deering

everything good is bad
and everything bad is even worse

what a lovely painting you made girl,

but have you seen this man’s
portrait of his dog?
How that man must love love love his dog.

you’re crying now? take a pill

you know Sarah down the street is
happy with her husband!
can’t you be a little more?


be quiet now girl
i’m trying to think.
