There's a bluebird in my heart.

"Dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I've a call."- Sylvia Plath

Hollow

Oh, what a wonderful feeling!

my efforts are confetti in the carpet,  my thoughts are overbrewed.
If I have been taught anything at all, it is to seek martyrdom in the frightened sinews
of daylight.

Darling, here am I. Nameless. Awake.
Now here/Nowhere.

I got this beautiful letter from the Himalayas today. The pressed flowers are from London.

-R. Sarma 

Sexual assault of Asian women on college campuses is a major issue. You get a room of five Asian American women together, and they all have stories about sexual harassment.’ Mainstream America shrugs off the notion of Asian fetishes, believing men who have such fetishes ‘are harmless.’ However, Leung warns, ‘It’s not as innocent as it looks.’ Helen Zia, a graduate of Princeton, commented, ‘It’s the image of Asian American women being exotic and passive and won’t fight back and speak up. Predators think they have free rein with Asian American women. Sunny Woan, “White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory of Asian Feminist Jurisprudence” (via 33113)
