stand down

(don't wanna hear it)

Oct 1

my problem is my mamma raised me far too nice
to ever wish death on somebody, regardless of how much
they’d harmed me so instead i’m compiling a list
of odd karmatic punishments
for the assholes of my existence like

i hope the girl who ruined my senior year of high school
by bullying the hope out of my bones
has a bad hair day on every first date. i hope
the words she said behind my back tangle around
her head so when people meet her for the first time
they can see how unkind
she really is.

my mother and my father were talking in public
and a policeman asked her if she wanted the
‘dirty hispanic’ to leave her alone
and i really hope that policeman goes home
to heat that never works properly and that
the cold makes his bones ache, i hope the
warmth of my daddy’s sun never kisses
the sweaty temples of men who use their
position of power as an excuse to be racist

the man who hit me until i bled from the
corners of my mouth and who kissed me no matter
how much i asked him to stop better constantly get
his dick stuck in his zipper and i hope a large rash
develops because of it because maybe being
in constant pain will make him learn
some empathy

i want the teacher who told my friend joe
‘you can’t be a boy just because you say so’
to spill overheated 99-cent coffee on her ironed skirt
every other thursday, i hope it stains because
her words never washed out of his ears either

i hope the boy who broke my heart is
doing well, because i’m doing well too, but i want
the boy who broke my sister by promising forever
when he really meant ‘just until you give me everything’
to get a tattoo with a misspelling
just because i think it would be funny
since he was so afraid of commitment

the man who told my friend to kill herself, to just get it over
should wake up to a leak in his roof
that has no particular origin and constantly drips
onto his face no matter where he moves his pillow to
because maybe then he’ll have some idea about
drowning

i hope the people who told my brother
he couldn’t succeed
solely based on his disability
constantly hit their heads when getting into the car,
i want them to blink back little black dots
and wonder what they’ve ever done wrong to deserve
this and then i want them to see my brother’s company
on a full-page spread because he’s twenty-four and
making more money than they ever did

my math teacher told me most girls are stupid
with numbers and i hope his wife is funneling large
sums of his money into an offshore account without
him noticing while my english teacher told me
he didn’t expect much because i’m not a native speaker
so i really hope in class one day
he unknowingly passes out one of my poems

and i hope if you’ve been hurt, your life has
turned around. keep your head up,
square your shoulders, trust that
the universe will find some way to sort things out. hold on
until your heart mends. regardless of what happens,
know that happiness
is the best revenge.

I can’t wish true evil or true evil will come back to me but that doesn’t mean I want assholes to go around happy /// r.i.d | inkskinned (via inkskinned)(via 10sirk)

“So, I ask to the women who are still not sure about rape culture, patriarchy, or male supremacy, if you see the problem behind a culture in which “no” is punishable, but where failure to say “no” makes any violation of your personhood your own fault. When you sit back for a moment and think to yourself that surely you can say no to men, and that I am blowing things way out of proportion, then at least do this test within your own life: Start saying No more often when No is what you really want to say. Establish firm boundaries with men and do not let up. See if the male you are saying no to immediately stops and respects your boundary, or if his automatic response, reflexive—as though he’s been learning how to do this since he was a boy, as though he sees no other response more logical than this—is to attempt to do what you have just asked him not to do to you. Notice how you feel when telling a man “no” as well. Do you feel butterflies in your stomach? Do you feel guilty (denying him his right of access to you)? Do you feel mean? Do you feel unsure at all as to whether or not you have the right to tell him no? It is very easy to feel that men are not so bad when you are still making sure to give them what they want.”

i do not have to choose between beauty and bravery.
there is no correlation between my bust line 
and the size of my heart.
i am both a woman and a soldier,
with all the more strength because of it.

feminism never made me hate men but the reaction to feminism sure as shit did

some men* you literally cannot hate people you’ve never met or even heard of.

"I loved you."

"You did."

"I loved you.”

Steve reaches out, tries to touch, but he can’t. Can’t move, can’t bring himself to feel the arm that is no longer there.

"You did. You did, Buck. And I love you," he says, pleads, fingers curling in, digging into his palm. 

Bucky jerks back, eyes Steve’s fist warily and shakes his head.

"No. No, I loved you.”

Steve knows he’s missing something, knows he’s not understanding. He straightens, lets his arm fall back to his side.

"What do you mean?"

Bucky frowns, shakes his head again, metal fingers tapping impatiently at the belt of his pants where a knife should have been. 

"You- You used to be smaller."

The word ends, the barest hint of a question colouring his voice.

Steve nods, waits.

"You used to be smaller. A-and you fought, you still-" he breaks off into a growl, flesh hand beginning to tremble. Steve’s gaze fixes on the unnatural stillness of the metal as Bucky begins to clamp up, eyes averted, jaw tightening.

"Bucky," he says, "Bucky, relax. Deep breaths, alright? Just like Doctor Banner-"

"You used to get in fights-" Bucky forces out, "used to come home bruised. Black- Black, black and blue your skin turning yellow, turning-" 

"Bucky-"

"Shut up! Shut up, I need- you used to come to me. I’d wrap you up, help you hide it from your mother unless it was on your face- couldn’t keep it from her then, could ya? Couldn’t… You used to need me, you used to-"

"I still need you, Buck. I still-"

No you don’t! No. You don’t,” he stops, finally turning to look at Steve, eyes shining with tears, “You used to be mine.”

Steve swallows, taking a small step forward and speaks, voice hoarse, “I still am.”

"No." it sounds too bitter, too dark, and Steve hates it, "You’re everyone’s now."
