I'm really into this essay a comrade wrote about abolishing the family and gender simultaneously by expanding family and gender more and more until we are living under communism and the notions of family and gender become meaningless

like just
how is "shit-talking joe biden to a ukranian minister" what pushed nancy pelosi to be willing to impeach trump but not the fucking... literally everything else...

This is my mood around the trump impeachment proceedings.

Nothing I could say about @shel would be adequate but ze writes poetry and hir Patreon is here: patreon.com/shelraphen

New patron-only poem is up! (With audio recording!)

"Emma" is about living a long time, seeing a lot, wondering, and knowing what you can and need to do. It is from the perspective an inspiring martyr

We stare so long at little glass boxes we see the world through glass boxes and perhaps we come to think the whole world is behind a pane of glass even as move through it the depth and air go unseen and so it feels immobilizing, or rather, mobility is never a consideration to start. The world happens, and you move outside of it. What can you do? Nothing, you feel it in the stillness of your muscles as you stare and watch the world.

But I'm here to tell you, you could punch your boss in the face

Hi!! I just posted audio recordings to Patron of every poem I've published to Patreon so far. Patrons can now use their podcast app to subscribe to a feed of my recorded poems!
