A line of roses lines the street where Michael Brown was shot

call me rough, ill-tempered, slovenly— i tell you,
every tenderness i have ever known
has been nothing
but thwarted violence, an ache
so permanent and deep, the lightest touch
awakens it … it is impossible

to care enough. i have returned
with a second symphony
and 15 piano variations
which i’ve named prometheus,
after the rogue titan, the half-a-god
who knew the worst sin is to take
what cannot be given back.
i smile and bow, and the world is loud.
and though i dare not lean in to shout
can’t you see that i’m deaf? —
i also cannot stop listening.
from “ludwig van beethoven’s return to vienna,” rita dove, 1952 (via honeychurch)

“Why were you late in today?”

“Oh, I got tied up on the subway…”

I was always 50/50 on whether to reblog this but the last comment pushed it to like 95/5 in favor.

"What’s our stop?"

"You’ll get off when I tell you to."

Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video just broke the Vevo record with 19.6 million views in 24 hours. The record was previously held by Miley Cyrus. Shout outs to Nicki reclaiming Black women’s sexuality while defeating the very white woman who tried to accessorize it.
