spent last weekend in new orleans for work. i avoided being a tourist and spent time in the 9th ward with my parent organization ACORN. over a year later the 9th ward is still devastated. in a sense, its worse than third world countries. at least there there are some reasons for why the shit is all fucked up. here, there are no excuses. silent...

Sometimes it rains like sudden sadness
I stare up into the web of branches sway
The atmosphere sirens wail
I stare down onto concrete blocks
Rain bombs my soul to night
Wash away graffiti dirt
Or the red run to the gutter
I stare in to my eyes
I flinch from particles in air
I glare at my ugly unconcern
Soft patter of the mushroom...

i spent about 10 minutes reading the "missed connections" section of craigslist...and i hated it. LOATHE. ABHOR. in case you dont know what it is, its a bulletin where you can opine (and pine) over people whom you had a missed connection with - on the train, bus, street, wherever. what it REALLY is though, is a bulletin for some emo hipster cowards too afraid...

Hillary Clinton is a phony. She wants to be a high-power politician; I doubt she cares about much else.

from that perspective, a woman can only have a geniune freind if she does not feel threatened (less, pretty, witty, generally tolerable, etc.) by her. this can go both ways, but i think it can be largely one-sided.

but it's not like everyone's out to stab each other in the back for a possible mate. not everyone's out to look for love or be a breeder. what, then, in the case of lesbians? how would this behavior modify when you're fishing from the same pool of competitors and prospects?

Oh yeah, treat your cut well.

I cut the shit out of my finger slicing bread a few weeks ago, right on the knuckle, nearly passed out trying to get it to stop bleeding. No the scar tissue is thick and it hurts every time I bend it. Such is life.

"if you give me a fish, you have fed me for a day.

if you teach me to fish then you have fed me until the river is contaminated or the shoreline seized for development.

But if you teach me to organize then whatever the challenge I can join together with my peers and we will fashion our own solution."

It is so hard to hear the words and let it sink in.
have you ever gotten news so horrible that it makes your face red in humiliation
it would almost be better to be in denial - the alternative unbearable.
it broke my heart, which is already fragile.
If I had known then what I know nowwell, you know how that adage goes.

A mother who works outside the home would earn an extra $85,876...

cheesy i know, but i'm a sucker for it:

now i'm working here.

its not the greatest pay, but like evelyn lau said, "the truth is hard, the truth that money earned from prostitution is meaningless, fifteen dollars from a published poem could make me feel rich. That's the kind of money I earn with love..."
