i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake
i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.
they huddle together for warmth
and then their quills stab each other and they run away.
I want to touch you like porcupines want to be softer
like kids want to be astronauts
like God wants that eighth day.
I want you like an eighth day —
the story no one wrote
so it doesn’t have to end
badly. Talia Young, “The Virgin’s Lament” (via writeyourheart-out)
