a portion of mishimas suicide note

"then you have no future. you will never be saved. it is the end. the constitution will remain forever. you are finished. you are unconstitutional. listen. you are unconstitutional. the jieitai is unconstitutional. you are all unconstitutional. i salute the emperor. tenno heika banzai."

as of late i am re obsessed with yukio mishima. it is a little embarrassing to revert to where one once was, but my commitment to reading him is easily twice what it was. in 2005 i first stumbled across confessions of a mask at a laundry mat in toronto. it feels so strange to be so swept away by the beauty, nihilism and romanticism of a right wing lunatic but maybe it is important to be pummeled and thoroughly confused by your connection to another person?

there is a God!

Queer marriage equality has just
passed in Washington, D.C.!




we help each other out of our shirts and rub out the burns on our backs
the rotting on my skin fade blue and yellow
the lines marked into your arm curve like lace
bleach them in the sun until we can no longer remember how long, how deep, how far
let your feet touch my face and it will lead to water
and goodness swells in water

Straight Americans need... an education of the heart and soul. They must understand - to begin with - how it can feel to spend years denying your own deepest truths, to sit silently through classes, meals, and church services while people you love toss off remarks that brutalize your soul. ~Bruce Bawer, The Advocate, 28 April 1998

In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation. ~Simone de Beauvoir

Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. We are all tied together in a single garment of destiny. I can never be what I ought to be until you are allowed to be what you ought to be. -Coretta Scott King
