Spittlebugs are pests, sucking the sap from garden plants and using it to make their protective, slimy froth. Eventually they grow into froghoppers. But while they are in their nymph form, if you gently scoop one out of its foam, you’ll find that it’s weirdly adorable and almost invisibly small.
!!!! I’ve been wondering forever who was spitting on the forest
inside, wars in thousands
just cells, just cells,
under hot as desert sun-star —
says, beg your pardon, miss?
and walks away with
her shivering star-like heart.
Nikz’s Note: think I found a new crush?
I love to give and get hickies. I think they’re lovely. Unfortunately society deemed them unacceptable.
Reminds me of drunken girls trying to pose for a photo. 🐴
I like to twist my hips around the
where you are not
and moan into the shadows
where your lips
ought to be.
The emptiness engulfs me
the way your arms used to.

and I don’t quite miss you either;
It’s just different
to your phantom.

Diatoms are a major group of typically unicellular algae, and are one of the most common varieties of phytoplankton. Unique to diatoms, their cells are encased in a cell wall of silica (silicon dioxide), which is responsible for their crystalline appearance. Diatoms are autotrophic, meaning they derive their nutrition from their surroundings by means of photosynthesis or chemosynthesis. This places them in the role of producers in the food chain.

i like to create playlists
of songs that i used to love
in my past so that i am reminded
of who i once was, and revel in
myself now, some fucked up version
of self-love and worship,
a aural shrine to bad taste, to
secret longing, sounds that make tears
this is what I do
