Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to.

“The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees … The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there. He fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn’t anything there.” - John Hughes

Tiny dragons with colourful scales living in trees and feeding on fruits and flowers’ nectar 

Bioluminescent aquatic dragons roaming in the abyss and scaring the hell out of sailors

Fluffy dream dragons capable of feeling when children are having nightmares and materializing into their room to cuddle with them

Giant, old as the universe dragons exploring space, needing nothing but starlight to survive

Circular Surface Planar Displacement Drawing (1970)

Heizer is interested in the transformation of the earth’s surface through human action.

the artist drove a motorcycle in circles in Jean Dry Lake, Nevada, to create this drawing

the photos in the last image (above) document the process from a different point of view— the photographer and camera were mounted on a scaffold that was moved sixteen feet for each for each new shot in the array

This isn’t an emergency
but can you feel your heart
waking up
underneath your ribs?

Do you remember
feeding our fingers
to the birds?

How the light flared
through the gap
between your teeth?

How this isn’t an emergency
but did you forget
to tie down
your response to it?

Did you forget
that we devoured each other
from the inside out?

How the sky was so full
of news coverage
that it only rained

This isn’t an emergency
but our lips will always be
warning sirens
in an empty field,
forever searching
for the teeth lost
in the crash.

We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.

Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.

To outsmart the world you’ve got to
outsmart the metaphor, dismantle

the songs of childhood, say goodbye
to the only life you ever really had—

the moment before the brute
dictation, before the grass drills

that could kill a man, when the egg
cracked, and you existed both yoked

and split. Write this down: I love you—
now leave me alone; and in between

a bunch of us touched
and were touched, pried open,

and opened more, found
the world in the crude

the Amen in the wound.

Jules Gibbs, "Brute Dictation," from Bliss Crisis (Sheep Meadow Press, 2012)
