All Her Odes

I loved Odes by Sharon Olds. All her odes! To the hymen, to the condom, to the tampon, to the dirt. To the corner she was stood in, to pine trees, to her fat. To withered cleavage and amaryllis, to the word vulva, to the wind. You have expanded my notion of what language can do, o "wild original scribbler!"

I Run This Shit

Yes, Kesha! Woman.

Everybody Lies

Everybody Lies: How Google Search Reveals Our Darkest Secrets, by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz. Interesting sections on "hidden explicit racism," reactions to Obama's San Bernardino speech, and biases against young girls.

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART!

More Beautiful

But one day your shit will be unbelievably together
One day you’ll care a whole lot you’ll always take vitamins
And exercise without bragging and words will fit perfectly
Into your mouth like an olive soaked in gin
The glory of an olive soaked in gin & its smooth smallness

Also, how great is the first line of this poem in response to my favorite Gaga song, in the voice of Queen Bey?

“Girl you know you ain’t that busy.”
