Between Us, Stephen Berg
awritersruminations: poetry365: It is snowing heavily again. I have been watching it for a long time the way a blind man looks at the world on the back of his eyelids. Something I wanted in my hands is not there, and I hear the soft cry of the flakes approaching. Trapped among branches, it sounds as if I have lost someone and have reached up to find that same whiteness on my mouth, plunging...

Wild Geese by Mary Oliver
You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep...

What I Want
I want my heart to feel safe with those I give it to. I want to go on adventures. I want to see beautiful things. I want my heart to beat fast. I want to feel supported by those I love. I want to meet interesting people. I want to travel. I want to learn about everything. I want to make things, beautiful and strange. I want to feel free. I want to feel alive. I want to smile as much as...
8 REASONS CAPITALISTS WANT TO SELL YOU DEODORANT
garconniere: kimclit: dropdeadtwat: 1. Body smells are erotic and sexual. Capitalists don’t like that because they are impotent and opposed to all manifestations of sensuality and sexuality. Sexually awakened people are potentially dangerous to capitalists and their rigid, asexual system. 2. Body smells remind us that we are animals. Capitalists don’t want us to be reminded of that. Animals are...

Day 1 — A letter to your best friend.
Dear love, Yes, you are my best friend — you are also my partner. That is dangerous, perhaps, but I’ve never trusted anyone with that duality as wholly as I trust you. I trust you so much that I believe the dissolution of our latter relationship would not necessarily mean the ruination of the former, the arguably more important: our friendship. Why are you my best friend? The...
Roses From My Friends
Sometimes I feel I know strangers Better than I know my friends. Why must a beginning Be the means to an end? The stones from my enemies, These wounds will mend. But I cannot survive The roses from my friends. -Ben Harper
The Sugar Bee: The last kitten died. →
This is just… miserable. I don’t even know what to say. At least she/he died while she/he was asleep. The last kitten died over the span of 30min, gasping for air every 60 seconds, then every minute and a half, then every 4 minutes… and I’m not even sure how that’s possible. They had all the… My friends had a cat living on their porch for almost a year. A few days ago, Big Cat...

I’m having one of those days where I really want to watch a realistic love story — but I can’t think of a single one.
atomische @ tumblr: Save Our Gulf, BP →
Someone explain to me why I should donate money via Tumblr to Save Our Gulf. After all, this isn’t a natural disaster. It’s a man-made disaster with a short and unambiguous list of responsible parties. And it is not an accident — it is a disaster caused by malfeasance, greed and corruption. The… So because this tragedy was avoidable and man-made, we shouldn’t even attempt to...
