One second everyday from the lovely month of August! Very happy with life these days.
Sarah, Alexis, and John had me watch this (and the end of the first Sharknado) last night. Needless to say, I’m obsessed. Can I get a “Sharknado 2: The Second One” tattoo?
The most important movie(s) of our time.

You found me, mouth like a pomegranate
picking flowers in my mother’s field.
An invitation of sorts.
You took it as one and spent five months
thinking about slipping your fingers into my mouth.
I think the Earth changed the day we met,
It had been waiting for you to bare your teeth
and swallow me whole
It had been waiting for the cup of your palm
around my neck except you didn’t have to beg baby
you said “let me show you what flowers look like
from the earth up.”
and I said “yes, please. Show me your flowers,
show me your dead, show me your fingers.”
My mother warned me about gods like you,
hungry, greedy gods like you
all desire and no thought
all want and no logic
I was the same.
I skipped with you into hell
Artemis knows dragged, I know this:
I held my arms outwards and let you tie them
so softly that I asked what they were made of
and you said “prayers.”
We kissed at the entrance, open-mouthed
we kissed like we were starving,
kissed like the dead were crawling out of hell
I decorated your dark with flowers
and sat on your lap and fed you petals.
It makes me burn when they say
“Hades stole Persephone.”
and I tell them “No.
I stole him.”
If you leave me alone in a car for any period of time, it’s almost guaranteed I will take a barrage of selfies.
There are still shadows of you in my life
But I’m realizing that it is inevitable
If you’re standing in the sun.
is not pretty
but I don’t care
Set the dumpster
on fire. Break
Don’t kiss me
like they do
in the movies.
like they do
on the emergency

"I am like you. I am like you. I too at times am filled with so much fear. But like a hallway, I must find the strength to walk through it. Walk through this with me. Through this church that is ours — this church of bone. […] Bend with me. In this church of ours.
There is a doorknob glowing like chance. Clutch it. Turn and pull. Step through. Chin up. Back straight. Eyes open. Hearts loud.
Walk through this with me.
Walk through this with me."
Anis Mojgani, from "Closer" (via weissewiese)
