You could have a big dipper   

21st Century Feels by Louiza Lazarou


It’s hard to feel things

when you’ve spent years

numbing everything

with fiction and booze,

patching up wounds

with stale bread.

All I hear is dead rockstars

playing intimate gigs in my head,

while I stare

at the only canvas painting

I have ever made.

Its cakey acrylic blend

attempts to be

a psychedelic emblem

but instead,

an unfulfilled dream

is staring back at me.

The day requires I engage with my past,

but all I want to do is binge Netflix.
