It’s always on the days where I’m doing the most ‘American’ of things, like sitting and working all day in an office chair, or driving around in a rush to be somewhere for absolutely no reason at all, when I feel a pain in my heart that I know comes from missing Morocco. I miss coffee that isn’t offered to-go and doesn’t cost $4.00 a cup. I miss walking through the medina and feeling thousands of years of history seeping into my bones. I miss food that is fresh and affordable, and having couscous on Fridays with friends and their family. I miss hammams and feeling like I’m born again after every good scrubbing, instead of the five minute long I’m-late-for-work-showers that I can barely squeeze into my days here. I miss waking up in the morning, looking out from my porch, and wondering about all the things I COULD do that day, instead of all the things I have to do.
TAKE ACTION: Earlier this evening, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Governor Rick Scott filed to intervene in the lawsuit seeking the freedom to marry in Florida, Pareto v. Ruvin. They are doubling down and using taxpayer money to hurt LGBT Floridians. Send them an email now and tell them to stop defending the indefensible! Take action here: http://bit.ly/TgHuUp
What To Do When Your Boyfriend’s Asshole Best Friend Says, “Hey, Never Trust Anything That Bleeds For Seven Days And Doesn’t Die,
OR The Only Poem I’ll Ever Write About Periods.
Don’t excuse him because he’s had
at least three lite beers
and is sweating through his black button down
that his mom or exgirlfriend
probably bought him.
Don’t excuse him because he’s been turned down
by the last six girls he went on dates with
after meeting them on tinder
with a picture that’s seven years old
Don’t excuse him because
he’s usually such a nice guy
because you don’t want to be a bitch
because you don’t want to cause a scene
because when you were seventeen
your sister told you
no one likes an angry feminist
Let me explain something to you.
Every goddamn motherfucking month since I was eleven,
a part of me
tore itself to shreds
ripped itself apart inside me
and then remade itself.
So yes, I bleed for seven days
and I don’t die
You know what else can do that?
Things of legend.
Fuck, I can even
So I say, never trust anything that can’t
bleed for seven days and not die.
You know what that makes it?
So let’s see, hon,
What you’re made of.
If you can bleed for seven days
and not die.
Rip out his jugular with your teeth.
And when he bleeds for seven seconds
spit on his corpse and say,
I thought not.
