Some fathers hate to read but love to take the family on trips. Some children hate trips but love to read. Funny how often these find themselves passengers in the same automobile. I glimpsed the stupendous clear-cut shoulders of the Rockies from between paragraphs of Madame Bovary. Cloud shadows roved languidly across her huge rock throat, traced her fir flanks. Since those days, I do not look at hair on female flesh without thinking, Deciduous?
You are free and that is why you are lost.Franz Kafka (via sophianism)
My real self wanders elsewhere, far away, wanders on and on invisibly and has nothing to do with my life.Hermann Hesse (via poeticsofdeath)
Seemingly unaware of my presence, these [‘very blond, very white, jock type’] young men talked about their plans to fuck as many girls from other racial/ethnic groups as they could ‘catch’ before graduation. They ‘ran’ it down. Black girls were high on the list, Native American girls hard to find, Asian girls (all lumped into the same category), deemed easier to entice, were considered ‘prime targets.’… ‘Naturally,’ the presence of the Other, the body of the Other, was seen as existing to serve the ends of white male desires…. They claim the body of the colored Other instrumentally, as an unexplored terrain, a symbolic frontier that will be fertile ground for their reconstruction of the masculine norm, for asserting themselves as transgressive desiring subjects.bell hooks, Black Looks: Race and Representation (via no-dickpix)

harryette mullen, exploring the dark content. (via black-poetry)
The dream is not a map.
A poem is not the territory.
The dreamer reclines in a barbershop
carpeted with Afro turf.
In the dark some soul yells.
It hurts to walk barefoot
on cowrie shells.
