motivational dvd

I would sleep much better
if I weren’t shitting bricks
this is mostly not my fault
emptiness has sharp edges

life is a fatal bout of insight
discipline’s all about focus
let your will go willy-nilly
who stole my cheese

the grand order of the cosmos says
spiritual grace comes in many forms
so quit staring at me you little freak
