i remember you remembering, do you?

if you haven't heard of Tyler Knott Gregson, you haven't lived.

he is the best poet i have ever read. and he uses a typewriter to print his poems, and scans them, and puts them on instagram. (his username is tylerknott)

below i wrote out one of his recent poems, because i love it. it's only a little part of it, because it was super long. so if you want to see the whole thing, just go to his instagram or google him or something. (stalker.)

"do you remember the time i told you that there's
more to life than waiting for death to stop
crossing her t's and dotting her i's and checking
her list and checking it twice to finally get our
names? i remember the time i told you that we've
got two hands but one is for holding mine and
what you choose to do with the other determines
the who and the how of what you'll become. 
squeeze it tighter now and whisper into my ears
what you want and i swear on the bones that were
made strong when milk did my young body good, that
i will break them all into dust and chalk powder
just to bring you what you need.
mention it, just mention that you like the smell
of new water on old earth, and i will give you the
rain. take down your hair and i will become the
wind and do nothing with my days but play in it...
i remember you remembering. do you?"

its pretty amazing, huh? yeah.
