Zack from Blackbird Raum
Train tunnel in the Appalachians
and 195 countries I have not visited.
Yet I am stuck in this insignificant town,
Being pressured into making decisions about my future,
When I barely even know who I am.
i wanna date someone and live with them in a shitty apartment but be happy about it because we are happy together and we can decorate it with stupid dorky posters of shit we like and figurines and art and we can cook weird recipes we found on the internet and eat them and watch cartoons even if the food is gross because we made it and we’re perfect

first few frames of a new hand drawn animation that i’m working on. in the distance to the left, silhouetted by stars is citadel hill, the area surrounding it was then called K’jipuktuk, but now stands Halifax, the forest is replaced by condo’s and cranes. it doesn’t really matter that we’ve been pushed out of our beloved neighborhood.
before a genocidal rampage of Edward Cornwallis against the Mi’kmaq people that occurred so that we may live by the ocean, before we poisoned that ocean with our leaky ships and coffins, and before our home was built on the street named in honor of a mass murderer and then torn down and renovated into condo’s for the next group of invaders to arrive, in a “historic” neighborhood, where the history is one where all things good are burned and all things evil are protected — before all of these things, it was really beautiful here.
