THE END

Miguel: Tulio, did you ever imagine it would end like this?
Tulio: The horse is a surprise...

Well that’s because they’re not always telling each other how much in love they are. A good love scene should be about something else besides love. For instance, this one. Me fixing grapefruit. You sitting over there, dopey, half-asleep. Anyone looking at us could tell we’re in love.
In a Lonely Place, 1950.

“Fili was to have lots of small throwing weapons, both knives and axes. I designed the knives for his upper arms, though they were shifted to fit in his vambraces. We also designed a little royal crest for the pommel of the dagger I designed. Nick Keller ran with it and it wound up on many of Fili’s things, which was fitting, given he’s a prince.”

[TW: rape] But it was not until 1993 that marital rape had become a crime in the sexual offense codes of all 50 states. By 1996, 17 states and the District of Columbia completely repealed their exemptions from rape prosecution granted to husbands. However, 30 states still allow husbands some exemption from rape prosecution. Remarkably, in many of these 30 states, when a wife is legally unable to consent—for example, when she is mentally or physically impaired, unconscious, or asleep—a husband is exempt from prosecution. The weakness of marital-rape laws—the fact that a majority of states still allow these spousal exemptions—indicates that rape within the context of marriage is perceived as a less egregious act and treated by the criminal justice system as a less serious crime than if committed by anyone else. Indeed, wives are still to a significant degree the property of their husbands.

Because subjects like literature and art history have no obvious material pay-off, they tend to attract those who look askance at capitalist notions of utility. The idea of doing something purely for the delight of it has always rattled the grey-bearded guardians of the state. Sheer pointlessness has always been a deeply subversive affair.

 from my heart down to my legs.

(Source: arkhangelsks, via whatsalittleincest)

I have hurt you, my dear,
I have torn your soul.

Understand me.
Everyone knows who I am,
but that “I am”
is besides a man
for you.

In you I waver, fall
and rise up burning.
You among all beings
have the right
to see me weak.
And your little hand
of bread and guitar
must touch my breast
when it goes off to fight.

That’s why I seek in you the firm stone.
Harsh hands I sink in your blood
seeking your firmness
and the depth that I need,
and if I find
only your metallic laughter, if I find
nothing on which to support my harsh steps
adored one, accept
my sadness and my anger,
my enemy hands
destroying you a little
so that you may rise from the clay
refashioned for my struggles.
