blood and bone



movies are cool. 

they leave you like wow,

that was awesome.


they leave you like wow,

i could never do that.


but let’s make a movie

without characters

without a story

without music

without aesthetics

without editing

without advertising



let’s make a movie

without actors

without writers

without musicians

without make-up artists

without computer geeks

without marketers



a machine runs on gears. remove one, and the entire thing falls apart.

you are important.

the actor cannot work without the writer.

the musician, the computer geek, the make-up artist, the marketer,

they all wait

for the writer.

they can’t go on without her.

and the writer, she waits for the make-up artist.

she watches her work come alive.

and the musician, he waits for the computer geek.

he watches his work blow minds.

we are a machine.

we wait for each other.

but none of this could be

none of this

without the blank page

cold morning

hot coffee

deep breath in

and out.

the pen in the hands of a writer.


we are a beautiful machine.

you are a beautiful gear

an important gear

the blood and bone of God.


love,
abbie

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
