Eyvind Earle, Where Dreams Are Born
wHY ARE WE NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS
Miracles happen every day. We just don’t notice them.
Shoujo Kakumei Utena: A beautiful rainbow of dysfunction.
The African bullfrog is the biggest frog in Africa and very aggressive. But in spite of that, it’s a devoted father. Bullfrogs spawn in little pools around the margins of larger ponds and after mating is over one male stays to keep watch over the newly hatched tadpoles. If the pool begins to dry up the dutiful dad digs a channel to a new water source.
Definitely read this as “biggest thing in Africa”. Was perturbed.
Late night and rain wakes me, a downpour,
wind thrashing in the leaves, huge
ears, huge feathers,
like some chased animal, a giant
dog or wild boar. Thunder & shivering
windows; from the tin roof
the rush of water.
I lie askew under the net,
tangled in damp cloth, salt in my hair.
When this clears there will be fireflies
& stars, brighter than anywhere,
which I could contemplate at times
of panic. Lightyears, think of it.
Screw poetry, it’s you I want,
your taste, rain
on you, mouth on your skin.
OH MY GOSH THEY RHYMED SOMETHING WITH HETERONORMATIVE!!!
