AARON MILLER MONDAYS 11
"you hold on to the past, you make yourself miserable
and I’m ruled by seasons and sadness that’s inexplicable
and we will find a way to be lonely any chance we get
and I’ll keep having dreams about loveless marriage and regret”
IT’S ACTUALLY A RADICAL POLITICAL STATEMENT THAT I WAKE UP EVERY FUCKING DAY IN THIS GODFORSAKEN, PATRIARCHAL, WHITE-SUPREMEST WORLD AND DECIDE TO PUT ON LASHBLAST WATERPROOF MASCARA AND A PUSHUP BRA. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WHITE CIS-MEN SEXUALLY HARASS ME FROM THEIR CARS, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WHAT I WEAR MAKES ME INVISIBLE TO THE QUEER COMMUNITY, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I FEEL OBJECTIFIED BY A STRANGER, I STILL WEAR ALL THE LINGERIE I WANT AND TAKE ALL THE TIME I NEED WITH MY HAIR STRAIGHTENER. ALL OF THESE THINGS MAKE ME EXTREMELY BADASS, AND ALL OF THESE DECISIONS ARE NOT ACCIDENTS. IT IS A RECLAMATION AND IT IS NOT EASY. STOP UNDERESTIMATING ME.
Sometimes my mom mentions things that I say on twitter to me in conversation, and then will always qualify it with “I don’t check your twitter often, I just happened to read that one.”
But what’s a worm now to do?
