Rouen

by Melysa Towers Cassidy

 

I do not care for Monet.
Edgeless, flowing, pastel dreams
Self-indulgent, mellifluous recreations
that hide the violence.
Missing the bent auberge, moldering walls,
and pockmarked streets.
But he was here breathing this night,
another night, lost somewhere
with lavender, rose, and baby blue.
My swollen heart longs the deepest purple.
I will the sun--Go down!
Turn this pastel coverlet, spin it fuchsia,
flaming orange where they hauled
Saint Joan to her pyre
and snuffed her with licking flames.
Monet saw pink and I cannot see what he saw,
How he felt, what he thought in this place,
heavy with creation's spores--
the ash of death lingering in the cobbles.

"If you are planning simultaneous tea bagging all around the country, you’re going to need a Dick Armey." - David Shuster.

BaHAH.

Throw in comments like "firm support", "nutsell", "uprising".

How many puns can you throw in?

AWESOME.

The Conservative lobby in the states' favourite whipping boys when it comes to blaming someone for the legalization of same-sex marriage were "activist judges"- how dare they uphold the constitution like that! How dare they!
Unfortunately for them, that argument is not an option when discussing the recent decision in Vermont, because it was made in the legislature. That's right- not snobby appointed activist judges, but the legislature, democratically elected reps of the people.

So what is their new argument?

Well, one is, its because of the rich gayz!!!!

Tony Perkins, Family Research Council: “Same-sex ‘marriage’ is a movement driven by wealthy homosexual activists and a liberal elite determined to destroy not only the institution of marriage, but democracy as well. Time and again, we see when citizens have the opportunity to vote at the ballot box, they consistently opt to support traditional marriage.”

(Can i repeat myself- the Legislature did this, buddy. That *is* democracy.)

Hahah

This one cracks me up:

Mathew Staver, Liberty Counsel: “By redefining marriage, the Vermont legislature removed the cornerstone of society and the foundation of government. The consequences will rest on their shoulders and upon those passive objectors who know what to do but lack the courage to stand against this form of tyranny.”

Umm.... Marriage as the foundation of Government? Really? What about democratic principles? Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness. RIGHTS?? (Oh, and a little thing called separation of Church and state.)

Women's magazines in general are ridiculous. That said, in the the shadow of the big evil recession, they have become more silly.

But there is a lot of discussion about 'necessary luxuries', things that really are luxuries, but we personally won't cut down on.

Mine?

Burts Bees Lip Balm (You can pry it out of my cold, dead hands). I have one in every purse.
My 20$ face wash
Massages (This makes me sound like such a primadonna, but seriously. I need them to function. My neck, back and shoulders are FUCKED)
Coffee
Liquid Highlighters (Hahah this one is weird, but I burn through highlighters like nobody's business, and the cheap ones SUCK.)
Napping (Okay, so I could be so much more productive. Time is money, blah blah blah. But sleep is like CRACK.)
Pretty Underwear (Life is too short to wear ugly underwear. And, the more you have, the less often you need to do laundry.)
