The bruises he left
Never appeared on her skin
Only on her heart
”My Lord, remove from my heart the love of everything that You do not love.”
How the cup holds the tea,
How the chair stands sturdy and foursquare,
How the floor receives the bottoms of shoes
Or toes. How soles of feet know
Where they’re supposed to be.
I’ve been thinking about the patience
Of ordinary things, how clothes
Wait respectfully in closets
And soap dries quietly in the dish,
And towels drink the wet
From the skin of the back.
And the lovely repetition of stairs.
And what is more generous than a window?” —Pat Schneider, “The Patience of Ordinary Things” (via pigmenting)
I think I missed out on the “neat and cute handwriting” gene that every girl seems to have and this is unfair
Intelligent people have messier handwriting because they think fast. When you think and process things faster, you can also write quicker, but it’s going to be sloppy. People with neat writing are usually (no offense) not as smart. I embrace my shit writing.
Every utter a grain of salt rubbed onto a raw open wound
I don’t like the idea of “good” or “bad” people. I think if we can move away from that - especially in cases of rape or abuse - it would help. It isn’t a person who is good or bad, but rather their actions. So I don’t care if Billy is a “good” person; it matters whether Billy committed the act or not.
But yeah, passivity pisses me off.
the absolute hypocrisy of the american media is astounding.
seriously cnn posts a story about rape in India and the whole audience blows up and says NO WOMAN SHOULD GO INTO INDIA WHAT A BARBARIC COUNTRY WOW ALL INDIAN MEN ARE GROSS
and then they post a story about the Steubenville rape case and…nothing, they didn’t even try to be sneaky about it, it’s obvious people care about two golden football players than a rape victim
