CARRY ME DOWN THAT OLD DARK ROAD ◆ WHERE THE HAZE WILL FILL MY LUNGS
LAY ME DOWN IN THE COLD BLACK HOLE ◆ WHERE THE WATER WILL REACH MY TONGUE

a little while back I shared the notion that only people who are comfortable with their own mortality go into the woods, and that got me thinking about how one of ashe and prisoner’s first conversations was probably about last rites

they’re fine dw, it’s quite like them to use acknowledging the certainty of death as a roundabout form of intimacy, and finding a day where they’re not worrying about Dying and The End Of The World is like 80% of what basedt is about.
