where I am // where I want to be



We bring you tidings of great joy—
not only peace but poetry on earth.

- Julia Alvarez
When our breasts arrived
as a kind of currency, we’d tug
our camisoles low, use
our newfangled bodies to haggle
with the ice cream man. The winner
was the girl who received her chocolate cone
for free, who sucked on candy cigarettes
the same way she wore a training bra.
That summer my pockets grew forests
of hand-tied maraschino cherry stems:
tampered evidence that I might one day be worthy
of kissing. In exchange for rides
on the handlebars of their bikes,
we’d let the boys bite
the beads off our candy
necklaces until the chokers
resembled punched out teeth.
From their slobber, blue and violet
stained my throat where the sweetness
had once been, so I suppose,
Your Honor, I was preparing
for him.

Megan Falley "Beginning in an Ice Cream Truck
and Ending in a Court Room”
(after Kim Addonizio)


Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.

Khalil Gibran (via observando)

There are two reasons why people don’t talk about things; either it doesn’t mean anything to them, or it means everything

May your lipstick be the reddest and your eyeliner be symmetrical.
