Let me respectfully remind you — Life and death are of supreme importance. Time swiftly passes by, and opportunity is lost. Each of us should strive to awaken…….. …. awaken. Take heed. Do not squander your life.

may my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living whatever they sing is better than to know and if men should not hear them men are old may my mind stroll about hungry and fearless and thirsty and supple and even if it’s sunday may i be wrong for whenever men are right they are not young and may myself do nothing usefully and love yourself so more than truly ...
the great advantage of being alive
the great advantage of being alive (instead of undying) is not so much that mind no more can disprove than prove what heart may feel and soul may touch —the great(my darling)happens to be that love are in we,that love are in we and here is a secret they never will share for whom create is less than have or one times one than when times where— that we are in love,that we are in...
since feeling is first who pays any attention to the syntax of things will never wholly kiss you; wholly to be a fool while Spring is in the world my blood approves, and kisses are a better fate than wisdom lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry - the best gesture of my brain is less than your eyelids’ flutter which says we are for each other; then laugh, leaning back in...
may i feel said he may i feel said he (i’ll squeal said she just once said he) it’s fun said she (may i touch said he how much said she a lot said he) why not said she (let’s go said he not too far said she what’s too far said he where you are said she) may i stay said he (which way said she like this said he if you kiss said she may i move said he is it...

it is so long since my heart has been with yours
it is so long since my heart has been with yours shut by our mingling arms through a darkness where new lights begin and increase, since your mind has walked into my kiss as a stranger into the streets and colours of a town— that i have perhaps forgotten how, always(from these hurrying crudities of blood and flesh)Love coins His most gradual gesture, and whittles life to...
you shall above all things be glad and young
you shall above all things be glad and young. For if you’re young, whatever life you wear it will become you;and if you are glad whatever’s living will yourself become. Girlboys may nothing more than boygirls need: i can entirely her only love. whose any mystery makes every man’s flesh put space on;and his mind take off time that you should ever think, may god forbid and...

anygoddamnedcolleen: if whiteness can colonize and determine the political geography of every continent on earth, place itself at the top of the worldwide power and economic ladder despite being a global minority, convert billions to its religions, and wipe out entire indigenous societies, why do you think it needs you to defend it on the internet

socialuprooting: One of the more extreme government abuses of the post-9/11 era targets U.S. citizens re-entering their own country, and it has received far too little attention. With no oversight or legal framework whatsoever, the Department of Homeland Security routinely singles out individuals who are suspected of no crimes, detains them and questions them at the airport, often for hours,...

lebanesepoppyseed: The thing about the word “Nigger” that we’re coming to realize with Rick Santorum’s telling slip-of-tongue is how it truly operates. Nigger is not, like people commonly believe, just a rude way of referring to a black person. It isn’t simply a bastardization of the Spanish “Negro”. It is a leveler. An oral devastation of sorts. A place-putting, a head-bower. I truly...
Film Slutch: CARNEY CORNER →
filmslutch: I love: 1. The avoidance of the artificial shapings of stupid plot. 2. The way you depict a reality beneath, beyond, separate from words, thoughts, dialogue. Your characters hardly talk at all, and when they do talk, they don’t say anything that matters. That’s wonderful! That’s like life. Can you provide some context for this post? Who is it concerning? Who is Carney talking...

President Obama’s most swooning supporters love to credit him with “ending the war in Iraq,” but that is simply not what happened. It was President Bush who entered into an agreement with the Iraqi government mandating the removal of all US forces by the end of 2011. Rather than comply with that agreement, the Obama administration tried desperately to persuade and pressure the...
