Pulp Poetry

Scraps of fascination are the building blocks of an interesting life.

"

There’s been a lot of talk said recently because I was supposed to have said something about Negroes should buy rifles. White people have been buying rifles all their lives. No commotion.

I have an editorial here. It says that we’re supposed to be organizing some kind of Negroes to arm themselves with rifles and shotguns for self-defense. America is based upon the right of people to organize in self-defense. This is in the Constitution of the United States; you read it for yourself. The Second Amendment to the Constitution spells out the right of people under this particular governmental system to have arms to defend themselves.

To The Woman In The Neon Green Bikini

chuckamonkey:


to the woman
in the neon green bikini
at the water park

I’m trying not to stare
I’m looking everywhere but you
and I don’t want

to bother you
how would I talk with you
you are fifteen feet away

might as well be a crater
your son is playing next
to my son

maybe they’ll talk
then we can talk…

War excuses

Palestine: They destroy our economy, our families, and keep taking our land.

Israel: They started throwing rocks at us. They don’t deserve this land. We called dibs, like, 3,000 years ago.

"Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes."
- Jack Kornfield (via lazyyogi)

Signs I’ve acclimated to India #3

A couple kissing (a peck) in public was shocking and outrageous (but they were foreigners, so not entirely surprising)

Offended by men wearing shorts or women wearing tank tops in public. (Okay, okay, I am like this in America, too)
