KATNISS

 

shoutout to my home girl katniss
katniss keeps fire alive / storms fortress of lackluster post-holiday
effie called katniss and peeta her “pearls”
katniss was destined to be on top at the T-Day stretch
up 12% over 2014 / katniss has boy franchise licked
Official Katniss of Panem October:
I’m from District 12 / I do what I keep
katniss never runs out of arrows
katniss slings steel into “Creed” and “Victor Frankenstein”

katniss killing everything / shoots for $300M global
doesn’t it feel like ages ago peeta gave katniss the pearl?
katniss wanted that hollow / she got that hollow
I text her to say
the flame burning above the arena until dawn
I text her to say
you have sold every seat / every theatre in my heart
