this is bjdraKe.com ; mostly poetry. it was down for a year after a brain injury n hasn’t fully been updated since relaunch, but it will serve as the only “official” glimpse into the window of my life. i’m quitting instagram. i quit facebooK long ago n instagram is starting to feel like when the relapsed junky says, “at least it’s not heroine.” it’s become a meaningless exerciese of the thumb. plus, the advertisements maKe it less punK. i’m not quitting b/c i thinK the platform is involved in some grandiose experiment to manipulate/indoctrinate/distract the log/d on, but they more than liKely are. the reason ; time is precious. that’s it. there’s more to life than scrolling thru curated peeKs into other people’s/stranger’s lives. sure, the bathroom will dull, but i’ll picK up a good ol’ fashion/d booK when i shit. liKe we used to. #goodbye.
