I DID THE THING

15:
they say life goes through stages
that you can measure development 
by how many markers you’ve passed.
but I think I may be in a free for all now—
they said that the path ended here, but there is still far to go
they’ve just removed the signposts. 

16:
I have reclaimed my shadow 
by which I mean I have stopped wearing it.
It is a shadow once more. 

17:
I am remembering colors again.
You brought back reds, 
the soft blue of the crinkles around your eyes, 
the warm, permeating orange of your hugs—
ah, it is good to be here. 

18:
autumn apple smiles
gently curved edges
and that organic glint

19:
I’m back—
i’m back—
I am here; 
I am here. 

I am here. 

20:
I am my own Orpheus.

21:
spice: 
cumin and turmeric
cinnamon and paprika—
we leave imprints on your tongue
remnants of our power
that is what girls are made of.

22:
frost:
jack was always a nimble boy
leaping up to touch the clouds
until they reached back
until he fell
until the candle
went
out.

23:
leafy:
bent down to the river, 
hands open in supplication.
in return,
the sun caresses
and the water laughs.

24:
waltz:
for someone so clumsy,
I can easily adapt into steps of three
to a quarter note beat—
but I have been too scared to dance
for the longest time.

What do we say to the god of death?

Persephone: it pisses me off that people ignore the hymn to my mom that talks about how great we are together and instead believe this is against my will
Persephone: I mean I have you tied to the bed how would I not be into this
Hades: please can we not talk about your mom during sex it's really uncomfortable

At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?

#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators

(via meetingsinthedesert)

^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)

This parent is right.  The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers.  Have I got that right? (rhetorical)
