The sight of someone's name, should it make me breathless?
On paper, online, in text, on phone? It's been quite a trip, this emotional let-down, evoking the feeling of my milk dropping down, the relief of feeding, nurishing my son. I want to feed my fervent emotions, to release them, to shine, to blind with the stunning glow errupting from my heart. Share my breath, catching all the way to my spine. I beg of you, let me.

I am on another plane of existence.
One of pure feeling and neurological impulses. Mind streaming serotonin and adrenaline.
Neurons firing in a pattern that hits me with the full force
millions of years that it took to become

"God willing, we will take back our rights," Mousavi shouted from the roof of a car amid a vast sea of Iranians, young and old, who packed into central Tehran to protest Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election.
Micro-blogging service Twitter has delayed downtime because of the role it is playing in post-election protests in Iran

Cause you said maybe I couldn't hear over me
I guess that might have been a turn-off?
Then, you had your moment
and I did not know
So, I was foolishly continuing with language
fool, fool, fool
I am sad cause
I wanna hear you
wanna feel you
in your moment
The primal in me
wanting to watch you
How to go from thinking
my leg, wait, thigh
to touching my
even the thought of
can give me a
Not even the actual act has
in my mind
I am still on
being near you

Break the cycle
Break the cycle
Break the cycle

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
This young adult book focuses on Hannah and Clay. It also dives into teen suicide and is hard to put down. Hannah has committed suicide. Clay received a box of tapes in the mail. 13 sides for thirteen reasons why. Each side is for a person, including Clay. He wonders how he could be part of the tapes. He had a crush on Hannah, but never got close. It's told in dual narratives that are heartbreaking, confusing, and mind-numbing. Follow Clay one night as he listens to 13 reasons while roaming the streets of his home town. Insightful and definitely not just for teen readers.

However, it's not to be.
Tiller the baby killer has been shot!
The hate speech, aired 28 times.
Mass murderer, blood on his hands.
Red face, confident sneer.
Provoking hate and acts of violence.
Who me? He looks surprised.
Humble warrior of woman's rights.
What shall we remember of this day?
All the ones who laughed at the thought?
Our ideology of life does not include murder.
Four since 1993
Terrorized by a jihad
That promises death and destruction
Of their enemies.
Who upheld a legal procedure
Afraid for his patients
If anything happened to him.
Who loved his wife
Made his children laugh
Watched his grandchildren with awe
