Literate Chaotic / Still Love You, Buddy
« on: August 09, 2020, 03:25:12 am »
I am wearing white and I am a widow with the smallest of "w"s
My grief lower case, beneath the bar, lesser than
I am walking the river side and singing my sadness
To the egrets and herons and the bakery vans across the way

I am wearing white and my smallest of "w"s is as invisible
As the infinite heart I am shoving back in the closet
Painted over with lipstick, brushed out of my hair
Buttoned under shirts that say "attractive librarian" but not "sexy"

I am wearing white and the smallest of "w"s is screaming
Into the infinite ocean that the Atlantic can only dream of
Because the world does not stop for grief but I am still here
Not ready to walk alone or hold my own umbrella

I am wearing white and my smallest of "w"s is healing
But some wounds don't leave scars, they leave piercings
Holes that don't weep and but never close back over
My heart is cracked open and I can feel everything

Goddamn girl you are worth fighting for and you are worth your bullshit
You have to remember there are people who love you with their whole hearts
Even when you aren’t looking
People who will hold you in your weakness and your crazy
Who want better for you than this
Get your shit together
Make something beautiful out of this hole in your chest
Fuck somebody who wants to fuck you
Cry and scream and dig your nails in
Feel alive for five seconds
Do something that makes you want to keep breathing
To wake up tomorrow
You know you can't keep torturing yourself like this
He is not worth it no amount of dick in the world is worth it
You dumbfuck get up off the ground already
And live

Altered: get your ass to a COVID test. Cardiac events in our age bracket are a potential symptom.

Literate Chaotic / Love is Not Respect
« on: July 11, 2020, 02:34:34 am »
Love is not respect
It is not earned
Is not evaluated
It is not answerable to

Love is not up for debate
It is unreasonable
Uninterested in your dignity
Or better judgment

Love is not comfort
Not serendipity
Not complacency
It is not settled for

Love is not bribeable
Is not reliable
It does not take criticism
Constructive or otherwise

Love is not respect
It cannot be won
Or persuaded
It is not answerable to

Apple Talk / Seven Butts
« on: July 11, 2020, 02:33:48 am »
Today is seven butts
And that may sound like a lot
But it’s important to remember
That there are days that are significantly butt-ier
Days of dozens, thousands, millions of butts
The kind of days where you can’t seem to get out of bed
For the weight of all the butts on top of you
Infinite butts stretching out into the horizon
Obscuring the sun and moon and all the stars
Not leaving the slightest glimmer
In the fart-scented dark

Today is just seven butts.

I know he's left, but for any other mouthbreathers still around, the early data is pretty promising that the protests did not do much in the way of spreading the virus. Current working theory is that mask usage was very high.

Nazis at the statehouse today, waving their sonnenrad flag.

I dont get it. Is that supposed to be a quote from Germ? Did Germ catch on fire after raiding altered's lair? IS GERM OKAY?

The person whose safety I am most concerned for now is this Germ fellow. Altered has more teeth than anyone needs.

Daibai said to Baso, “What’s with all those koans where the novice asks the master for wisdom and the master is like ‘Wash your bowl’ or something mundane, and hearing this, the novice was enlightened?”
Hearing this, Baso was enlightened.
Daibai said, “See what I mean? What I said wasn’t enlightening at all.”
Baso was even more enlightened.
Daibai said, “Stop i–“

I like this! can I do it up as a page for Holy Nonsense?

The first three lines are nearly verbatim me, Ali Velshi, and the dude who lost his eye. Needs a little more work but I wanted to vomit it somewhere before it fizzled
