Retrograde

I was once in your orbit. Not a chore, a natural state of being. When I met you I was underemployed and anxious, too small and too sad for my own good. Trying my hardest to get drunk all day on attention, the type that only pretty, privileged people have time for. Wringing myself out at night to pile on black leather and take myself any place anyone would notice me, distract me from the magnetic shift of my lonesome apartment. The place where my insides got turned inside out. I was like a little alien alone in my bed, bleeding to death on the inside.

My devotion to you was suitable until it wasn’t. We could have never lived like that forever; just because it is, doesn’t mean it should be. We broke and now we’re shattered like dust hanging in the atmosphere. A chaotic little explosion like glitter from a cannon.

We might be better now or we might be worse, but at least we’re moving.

Good God, we’re in a lot of trouble if people think that Amy represents every woman. Feminism is not that fragile, I hope. What Amy does is to weaponize female stereotypes. She embodies them to get what she wants and then she detonates them. Men do bad things in films all the time and they’re called anti-heroes. Amy may not be admirable, but neither are the men on ‘The Sopranos.’

I don’t chase people anymore. I learned that I’m here, and I’m important. I’m not going to run after people to prove that I matter.

Anonymous ASKED

Reading is a technical skill, so it’d make more sense to use his illiteracy to argue that he *can’t* be an S, no?

Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct the course along the way.

Hide and Seek by Kay Ryan

It’s hard not

to jump out

instead of

wait­ing to be

found. It’s

hard to be

alone so long

and then hear

some­one come

around. It’s

like some form

of skin’s developed

in the air

that, rather

than have torn,

you tear.

Cutesy Tumblr Story

One day I was on a trip to New York and I was walking down a random hallway of an office building in Williamsburg and some guy stops me and says “are you philolzophy?”

And I said yes and the guy was printedinternet and we have followed each other for a long time but we have never talked or anything. We are just a Tumblr Success Story.
