“Walked around my good intentions, and found there were none”
“I’m Standing on a Stage of Fear and Self Doubt”
“Breaking down is easy”
I Think I’m Paranoid — Garbage, Version 2.0
“I am fifty shades of beige”
Sometimes I think
Is this the way I’m supposed to be
Was I just built differently
Or is there something wrong with me
Haze — Tessa Violet, from Halloway
“And like the cat I have nine times to die”
Is an art, like everything else.
I do it exceptionally well.
—Sylvia Plath, “Lady Lazarus” from Ariel
