poetry/prose by Calvero.

Why tumblr is bullshit… 

I posted a poem I was really proud of. Then I posted some bullshit, positive-frame of mind quote that I pulled from outta my ass. Check out the tags though… 

And guess which one has more notes. The poem about learning to love yourself or the short, quick to the point-quote that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside because that’s all people want on this site.

Not art.

Just quick, flashy, cliche bullshit that takes no thought at all to process.

I’m wasting my life.
