"If she bathes me in the hymns and dust
that will make me bulletproof
I will war for her battles too
love her enough to leave
when a Coltrane-Marley drumsong
bleeds war across my torso
enough to welcome her back
when her own hymns fasten her to a cross
and we love others with each other
on our breaths and feed revolution
down the throats of lovers who need more
than conviction to join their brothers"

you’re not really Southern unless you drink the pot likker left in your bowl after you eat a mess of collards

just sayin’




omg apparently artificial banana flavoring is based on the gros michel banana which was wiped out by a banana plague in the 50s and the banana we eat today is a totally different thing called the cavendish and thats why banana candy doesnt taste like bananas do you know how lied to i feel. like there was a fucking banana apocalypse and no one told me about it until now

Gros Michel bananas still exist though. They’re just harder to find than Cavendish, presumably because of the whole deadly-banana-plague thing (the Cavendish is resistant and the Gros Michel is not).

While we’re talking banana varieties, one of my life goals is to eat a Blue Java banana because they sound delicious.

There’s a place between two stands of trees where the grass grows uphill
and the old revolutionary road breaks off into shadows
near a meeting-house abandoned by the persecuted
who disappeared into those shadows.

I’ve walked there picking mushrooms at the edge of dread, but don’t be fooled
this isn’t a Russian poem, this is not somewhere else but here,
our country moving closer to its own truth and dread,
its own ways of making people disappear.

I won’t tell you where the place is, the dark mesh of the woods
meeting the unmarked strip of light—
ghost-ridden crossroads, leafmold paradise:
I know already who wants to buy it, sell it, make it disappear.

And I won’t tell you where it is, so why do I tell you
anything? Because you still listen, because in times like these
to have you listen at all, it’s necessary
to talk about trees.
