let’s see if this works. Will tag you in it once I’m finished.
Your weight above me is still
so new, but I’ve memorized the curl of your
fingers into my back, the hot center of my palm.
Each dip and swirl of your lips is branded
onto my skin like its very own thumbprint—
without even trying to, my skin separates your
kisses like a centrifuge. They rise to the surface,
I skim them like cream. I pour over. — aimee nezhukumatathil, the problem with skin
My audience is God,
because who the hell else could understand me?
Who else has been dead twice?
The words boil out of me,
coil after coil of sinuous possibility.
The cosmos unravels from my mouth,
all fullness, all vacancy. — margaret atwood, excerpt from half-hanged mary
"It just breaks me all up, man, it just breaks me all up. I just can’t understand it. Can’t understand a damn bit of it. Like, man, I’ve gotta get away from ‘em. I gotta get away from them before they mess up my mind. Before they take my soul, man, I’ve just got to get away, blast off in my rocket ship. I come from a better place than this. Why in the hell am I here for? I’m here to keep up with the pricks, all the narrow minded hoodlums, all the big talkers and big money makers and rackets, all these prick and squares around. Hell no, I’ve got to blast away. I’ve gotta get away, man. I gotta blast off like a super megatron rocket on electro dynamic radiation. Can’t stand it, man. I gotta get away."
