/Anywhere is walking distance if u have/Time to waste/
Through the science of scheduled posts you’re receiving this while Larissa is reaching 5,000 meters of altitude on a flight to Canada. We could have waited to send this one out but Larissa’s response to Wilhelmina’s space daddy poem from last week was just begging to break free. Also this may or may not be a reactionary poem to the fact that Larissa’s ex going on tour in a few days so maybe it’s best this go out while she has no phone signal.

Pick a physics equation and make up a little tune to go along with it. Sing in the shower! Share it here!
