I Follow You, Brother

I am baby teeth rattling loose in a sock drawer;
you are an elephant coffee stain on our mother’s ribcage.
Daddy’s deaf left ear smiles at us,
even if we dare to curse God or America or Kobe.

At the halfway time of the moon’s spotlight
my forefinger presses against your nightshirt,
the contours of your bony back,
our game of tracing symbols onto skin.
I am crimson laughter in a soda bottle;
you are mother’s gray hairs at thirty.

We can smell mother’s sleep from the bunk bed,
deep like a dying candle or burnt oregano.
“The liquor cabinet,” you suggest, “is unlocked.”
Down in the basement,
you make me drink a plant called gin;
it washes my tongue in earth and dirt.

My vomit is a lullaby, but also a siren.
Daddy, booming, looms now in the doorway.
All is dark except the hall light, and the glint
of Daddy’s claws.

Anonymous asked: I asked for your writing blog cause you're a great writer and I wanted inspo. just thought u should know

aw, thank you! that’s so kind :)

"We need scary women characters. Men hit women, cheat on women and frankly they are mouthier than ever nowadays. ‘Calm down’, ‘settle down’, ‘listen you bitch’ etc. They think if they hit their wives they will become submissive and afraid. Worse yet - they think that women SHOULD be afraid of men and should be submissive. They think it’s in woman’s nature to be submissive and fragile. And thanks to Gillian Flynn they can now see that sometimes woman’s nature is to be vindictive, righteous and very, very sly. There is nothing misogynistic in saying some women are evil. It would be misogynistic to say they are weak. And neither of the female characters in Gone Girl is weak."

This guy’s vines give me life

Thomas Sanders is a gift to this world

I have a theory on Thomas Sanders that he can control minds and rather than using this gift for evil, he uses it to make funny vines. Like, a classroom full of kids? mind control. The teacher of the class? mind control. Cop pulls him over? you better believe that dude is gonna sing Don’t Stop Believing with him, mind control.

you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games
