I AM BETTER HIGH (after Rilo Kiley)

by Malt Schlitzmann

my parents scream

embrace the demons who crave

inside, i am alert and petrified

i am awake and happy

i will fight through the valleys of cheap lows

through open and dying work

i will show up for God’s different calling

and embrace the listener an honest friend

son / daughter beautiful and positive

a real friend hurts good

teases absence when they sing along

I am laughing and crying

all my friends are extreme

a cheap fight for just because

it’s different this time

I am better high

I am awake and happy

I am so fucking on it hurts
