The Hate Eater

Consumer of judgment.

Unbreakable.

Clean Glass

Bottles full of new personalities.

Which one is real.

All of them.

Whichever one can talk.

I can’t talk.

I’ll try another.

From The Fog

Fear can be overwhelmed.

Stay Ruff

This is street dog.

Your leg muscles are just meat to street dog.

Street dog is gonna’ take a nibble when you aren’t looking.

Street dog keeps it ruff.

Don’t mess with street dog.

No Swim

People carry so much shame.

Please give it to me.

We can burn it right here.

And you can feel light again.

Have It

You want it? You can have it.

Are you sure you can carry it?

I’ll help you if I can.

I’m not trying to trick you.

 

I can be wrong.

I don’t need to win an argument.

People don’t really need to talk so much.

Just as well to bark.

 

You think people into what they are to you anyways.

If you hang around someone who thinks you’re a loser long enough–and you care about them–then you are a loser.

 

So leave.

Let them have it.

They’re right.

You’re right.

 

I’m going to go be wrong somewhere far, far away from here.

And I’ll be wrong and alright.

 

 

 

We’ll all be alright.

Or at least we’ll be alright with not being alright.

The Third Keeper: Electric Swift

Swift

Things we think we know about a person, relative to what we think we know about ourselves, relative to what we think we know about the world.

Ghosts, judging ghosts, judging dust.

 

So I stopped trying to answer their questions.

Even better, I stopped trying to explain myself to myself.

I built my own monolith in a field.

Mountains from dirt.

Incredible for no reason, and to no person.

 

Winds in any direction still lift, after all.

So tell me, what’s the difference.

Better yet, don’t.

Shelters

They keep telling me that you don’t exist.

But what could that possibly matter.

I can’t feel the rain,

And they are far behind now.

I think I could explain why to do it forever. But then, when would I do it.

Why not just surf on a wave of answerless questions instead.

No ability to explain what it feels like.

No need to explain what it feels like.

I’d like the appearance of success, but if that doesn’t work out…

The feeling of success will do just fine.

Lung(e)

It can be a little unnerving when the walls you spent so long building up get washed away in a high tide. Like you’re building with sand, and making no progress.

It’s no matter though, you always knew the walls were built out of sand.

You don’t find comfort in thinking they’ll protect you from getting washed away.

You find comfort in knowing they can be rebuilt.

Image note: This is a re-work of my previous post ‘Tracheal’ in preparation for its addition to the Super National store on Society6. All new colors and textures in 6k resolution for those who enjoy scrutiny! I actually ended up liking it a lot more than the original.

Just because you’re holding my map upside down doesn’t mean I’m lost.

Now hand me back that map and try to keep up, because I won’t wait for you.

Guides To Fusion

A modern tide generator pulls power when the tide comes in, and again when the tide goes out.

You can get rich betting on the stock market going up, or down.

We can’t always choose our emotions, but we can choose what we do with the fuel they give us.

Your love gives me fuel.

So does your distaste..

And it’s all going to the same place.

Waking Up

hey750

I’m sorry, I know I’m not making enough money to keep the wolves fed. I know my finances are kind of a mess, I feel bad about that. Just understand that I had–have no choice. I have to wake up every day and do what I love, I just don’t see any way around that. I can never forget that I only have one life, and that I can’t waste it. It’s something inside me that I can’t ignore.

Don’t worry, the money will come. I’ve been preparing this stage for a while now. I just had to make sure I got it right. I can’t end up like Robin Williams, hung out in a mansion. I had to keep following that voice, no matter what, in spite of everything. I had to do what I knew would make me happy, no matter how ignorantly idealistic.

But the tickets are on sale for the show now. Spotlights are beaming into the low fog. I’m ready to show the world what I can do. Ready to leave their doubts behind me.

You know, in High School, there was this kid I hated more than anyone. I remember suppressing the urge to throw a punch once or twice. It kept me up at night.

But for the life of me.. I can’t remember his face.

So I wonder,

What was all the hate for…

So don’t ask me if I’m doing okay.

Ask me if I’m looking forward to waking up tomorrow.

The answer is yes.

Love,
Cow

Oh, right.

Arrogance, how are you. Want to take the wheel for today? You look well rested, and I’m very tired.

I’m not sure if people like you more, or less, or the same. You don’t seem to care though. I always appreciated that about you.

Ready to fly?

Founder

anxietyreadyWARM1k

Anxiety, my old friend. You’ve been here for a while.

I always thought you were suffocating me in here…

But over time I’ve noticed,

Every now and then.. you loosen your grip enough for me to see outside.

I see we’re still heading the right direction.

And.. I see I’m not suffocating.

And then I see.

Well

They told me I had to choose between the security and survival of the human race or long warm showers. Hey at least we had a good run. Good thing I don’t have kids!

Image Note: I don’t even like this one.

shieldsI’m not saying I’m the best. I’m not even saying I’m better. I’m just saying with absolute, unbreakable certainty that I am good enough.

That’s a shield that will never break.

New! Free Badvice

boomAN

Don’t have $413.99 plus tax an hour to spend on a licensed professional counselor? Super Nervous Cow is now offering free personal and professional advice online here! (It’s a link)

Could a well founded, sourced, and educated argument be made that you shouldn’t take advice from me? Yes.
What are my qualifications for advising you, academic or otherwise? Nope.
Will you take advice from me anyways? That’s between you and your psychiatrist or therapist.

It goes without saying that I cannot be held responsible for what you do with the advice you are presented. Some advice may be given in the form of poorly drawn pictures, I also cannot be held responsible for how you interpret those pictures. Keep in mind that If my advice in some sick miraculous irony leads to your success in life, you are required by law to send me an emotionless and pragmatic thank you note with your printed signature.

Image note: it’s animated and doesn’t work in some mobile situations. No pictures in motion for all people in motion. Sorry!

Portrait Self

This illustration sucks. It’s sloppy, lazy, and convoluted.

So,

I’ve captured the human brain perfectly then.

Eso pha gus

stomachsymbolJPG

Some nights I want to disappear, but my body won’t let me.

I’m a physical object, and not a picky one. Always harvesting energy.

A leaf.

A mineral.

The flesh of a living creature.

I’ve made choices in life, good and bad. It hasn’t.

The machine simply continues.

Illustration notes: “Stomach” Part 3 in the organ series. I’ve actually had to make two of each illustration in this series because of Adobe Illustrator issues resulting in lost work. Each illustration seems to be becoming less abstract unintentionally.
