"No one’s fated or doomed to love anyone.
The accidents happen, we’re not heroines,
they happen in our lives like car crashes,
books that change us, neighborhoods
we move into and come to love.
Tristan und Isolde is scarcely the story,
women at least should know the difference
between love and death. No poison cup,
no penance. Merely a notion that the tape-recorder
should have caught some ghost of us: that tape-recorder
not merely played but should have listened to us,
and could instruct those after us:
this we were, this is how we tried to love,
and these are the forces they had ranged against us,
and theses are the forces we had ranged within us,
within us and against us, against us and within us."

— Adrienne Rich, Twenty-One Love Poems, XVII (via holdonmagnolia)

Your car breaks down a mile from the lake.
The old couple at the campground
lends us their phone, a picnic table, some stories.
While you call a tow truck, Karen points to something
tangled in the tall grass:
tiny pale blossoms veined with purple,
five petals arching lushly back from…

Ughhh

If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.

But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
