And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

I’m pretty sure that hair is a safety violation.

Yes, poor little old you. There we were, discussing rape, violence against women, systemic oppression and other manifestations of sexism, and you had to jump in to remind us that “not all men” do these things. Why don’t you really say what you want to say? “I HAVE NEVER RAPED/HIT/ASSAULTED A WOMAN!” Right? Isn’t this what you really want to say? Yes, make a discussion that is about the plight of MILLIONS of women about poor little old you. I mean, millions of women are being assaulted and oppressed, but you’ve never done it, so why are we making you uncomfortable with these discussions?

I’ve been hurt so bad
and loved just as hard,
so what does that say
about the heart other
than it bleeds and beats.

souls are bumblybees
busy with grey commands operated by origami sequence
sith syllables or a hum. twist of the bone, chitin a stunning
dance. the letter torn open- tumped the utterance chilly
enthralled in your furl

you threw me
onto the ground
in front of you
pushed down
with your foot
and demanded
i stand up
