there is a phrase
as though the faint gray rain over a green bay
as though the steepness of the hills
as though the marrow in your bones
is only soil.
do you take comfort in this, the knowledge
that all dirt returns to dirt, that when
you walk beneath the sky, it watches you
a breeze stroking your hair like her hand
stroking your hair, and touching your collar,
and your cheek—
before she returns to the shadows
watching you grow?
my absolute FAVORITE place to get gelato. this is peanut butter cup and dark chocolate noir sorbetto. check out www.gelatofiasco.com!
I love Gelato Fiasco!
I went there on Monday and got Salted Caramel Gelato with Dark Chocolate Noir Sorbetto. So good.
Everyone I love should move to Maine so they can eat this gelato with me.
james t kirk is an incredibly important fragile unexpected beautiful character who’s flawed and melodramatic and dorky and handsome and sexual and weird and HUMAN and cranky sometimes and deeply in love other times and a li’l chubby most of the time and he needs to be protected from everyone who thinks he’s a dumb hick who goes through women like tissues. protect james t kirk. this is the new prime directive

an exchange today:

[female student, interjecting]: “Girl?! Um, excuse me! She’s ‘woman’ to you, boy!”
I’m trying to apply for jobs and it makes me nauseous and I hate it and I want it to stop.
