Marilyn Manson makes me giggle so much.
Kowloon Walled City
‘It was the most densely populated place on Earth for most of the 20th century, where a room cost the equivalent of US$6 per month in high rise buildings that belonged to no country. In this urban enclave, “a historical accident”, law had no place. Drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes lived and worked alongside kindergartens, and residents walked the narrow alleys with umbrellas to shield themselves from the endless, constant dripping of makeshift water pipes above. Ungoverned and unregulated, was for so many years, a stain on the urban fabric of British colonial Hong Kong. This month it has been 20 years since the city was finally demolished and to mark the anniversary’ [MessyNessy]
Desireé Dallagiacomo - “Thighs” (WOWPS 2014)
"My thighs say: We don’t want your praise, man on the street corner… man in the parking garage… man in Walgreens while we’re buying tampons…"
Disappointed that you can’t make it to the Women of the World Poetry Slam Finals in Austin tonight? We can help! Our first video from the tournament!
So I’m reblogging this again because APPARENTLY there’s a thigh movement on Tumblr?? And this poem wants/needs to join that gospel. Amen to her most (t)high.
