(The crew of her soul rushed up to the deck of her body.)– Milan Kundera
milan kundera’s book poses the question:
is lightness or heaviness on the side of good?
i would say lightness—i who like my ribs showing
who like travelling, and wind, and vertigo.
but i cannot sleep without a blanket,
choose the bottom, wear heavy earrings.
i think i like the conflict between
being weighed down and still trying to fly.

We were all just little kids, little kids swimming in a pond that was too big for any of us. Do you remember when D pushed L into the pond and she was wearing that papery dress so we could all see through to her skin? Nobody is like that anymore.– Lucy
anoraborealis asked: Could you do a blog poem for me, please?
if we have something in common:
we’re applying to the same schools,
we have a fear of food,
a love of books,
maybe first love was your best friend
the rumors blossomed you were not
ashamed she was ashamed
holding hands said two things
you willfully misinterpreted.
maybe it was not love so much as it was
having someone to do private things with
like mopping up tears / blood
laughing squinting making happy faces
waking up next to her morning eyes
maybe it was the boy who she loved
and you hated so much that you loved him too.
he certainly had the qualifications
and broke your heart as promised
and as promised you didn’t feel
a thing. you stayed friends
you and she
Now she hated those suitors with their callused knees. She had a passionate desire to be the one to kneel for a change.– Milan Kundera
Anonymous asked: Do you like boys?
i’ve never met a boy-who-likes-boys whom i haven’t liked
but in terms of straight guys i dislike maybe 90% of them
and don’t mind but am not attracted to 9.9% of them
and adore the 0.1% with everything i’ve got
(how can you tell if a boy likes you
or actually how do you make a boy like you)
edit: this was a serious post people are supposed to answer it give me advice
helen launched a thousand ships
of men upon the sea.
maybe on a good day
i could manage two or three
small rowboats on a puddle,
if i could guarantee
breezy winds, easy wins,
and back in time for tea.
You are a shadow my body leaves on other girls.– Jon Sands
I have a growing queue of things I know
will make you laugh and I don’t know where to put them.
Everything decays even when dipped in nostalgia’s
embalming fluid which does preserve the best perhaps
though not in great quantities Generally in memories
even before the embalming procedure there is a lack of solidness
only an impression of dilated pupils or kicking under the table
However much is saved not much can be seen
only vague peering by memory-tourists into our dim tombs
Their vague sadness in finding that as suspected
they have been empty since they were filled.
In the sunset of dissolution, everything is illuminated by the aura of nostalgia, even the guillotine.– Milan Kundera
