Blogspot has been good to me, but I'm moving on to something simpler. My new internet home is ginaabelkop.com (so legit!). I will delete this blog in one week.

David Wojnarowicz
“I want to throw up because we're supposed to quietly and politely make house in this killing machine called America and pay taxes to support our own slow murder and I'm amazed we're not running amok in the streets, and that we can still be capable of gestures of loving after lifetimes of all this.”
David Wojnarowicz, Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration

Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes
“My murdered poets drew from deep wells, even if they were presently hidden from me. They spoke the same words as the monks, as the Conquistadores, as our Dictator General, but coaxed a language anew from the charred bones they’d been tossed. I had taken comfort that we had been lying for millennia, erasing whole races of writers, executing texts with aplomb. It wasn’t new. And someone had always been pressing hidden words from quill to parchment backed by stone. Whispering them into someone’s ear. Even if the parchment was burned and the hand chopped off and thrown into the same fire, the stone remained. Only there were the words legible.”
Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes, The Sleeping World
