bone requires bone #14

too often treated as a small lump empathy empathy empathy is the ending of just enough men to make it worth being everything we need more of it should be glowing by now that is how much we need it there should be fools rushing over mountains to bring some back to the city they should be rich for a decade off of what they can carry in their hands


bone requires bone #15

my favorite stories are what happens when the leather cannot be chewed enough to make it anything other than the hide of the fallen
