A Piece of Work You're Proud Of: I love this poem:
So I just took a walk.
I was with somebody else,
but she shortly fell for Tommy
and left indignantly
with eyes full of space
and a bag full of only three greek letters.
A bird flew by
drenched in layer after layer of hairlike feathers
that stuck close together and were constant
Shit, I guess I could have tried to kick it
(it was at knee-height)
But I'm not even that fast when I put on
boxing gloves or
I walked under a tree next
a leaf fell down
I saw everything
and then when it was halfway down
I wanted to grab it.
Tear it to shreds for some reason
for it's imitated crime
of not knowing what's inside
I would show it.
Strap it down
take its fingerprints with my electric chair.
But I couldn't get it
But I know Newton was right, except for the part about
And the last thing I saw before the sun set
was somebody walking by
who was looking at me, straight at me.
She was probably seeing my black sweaty ribs at
and was thinking I was drowning.
Then she was looking away
(making sure not to step in any cracks)
and she was missing my slow tear at
I guess she just walked by.
I know that she didn't see my hair,
too busy with her own highlights.
That's probably because mine is brown
like a chorus of mosquitoes
singing and flying to
something by Beethoven
at their own speed, 1000
They keep sucking
now and now and now
and they won't stop
giving their own and taking
I hope they don't get too close to
because they will lose their
in a blinding flash.
Abortion: I have never had one and don't plan to. I don't even think I can. So I guess I shouldn't say anything either way about it. I support the individual.
Suicide: Not necessarily a product of nihilism. Borges and Camus taught me how to avoid this inevitability.
Pre-Marital Sex: Be safe and have a great time!
Gay Marriages: I wrote this a while ago and stand by it with every ounce of my heart:
I have a fucking dream
It seems to me that if President Bush wants to support an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, he should also create a movement to repeal the fourteenth amendment.
The simple fact is this:
Currently, the government and many different government-sponsored organizations of the United States of America provide priviliges based on arbitrary biological facts (sexual orientation, in this case).
Yep, that's right. For those of you who thought that this ended back in the 60s, think again. The government hasn't kept it's promise:
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. "
Sound familiar? That's part of the fourteenth amendment. Of the Constitution. Of the United States of America.
And to all of you assholes who think that marriage should remain the same because it's based on the Bible, which is purportedly 2000 years old:
Bullshit. Check this out. It's old too:
A tomb of a same sex gay married couple Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep was discovered in 1964 in the necropolis of Saqqara, Egypt. The tomb dates to the Fifth Dynasty (circa 2,500 BCE), and shows that homosexual marriages date back over 4 millennia!
That's from this site: http://www.religioustolerance.org/hom_m
Civil unions should be the only thing recognized by the government and by those organizations that cannot legally discriminate. Marriage should be for those who want it.
Pornography: I haven't thought about this issue much. Hmm. I don't really know enough to say anything about this. I would love to listen to what people think though. I am against the exploitation of women but I support the idea that you can use what you have.
