words, words, words

love at first sight is bs because love makes you look twice.

You look once and do a double take

Because you see these golden lights

And wedding bells are going off in your head

In your mind you’re already in white—

because summer rippled through our wrists like a

disease, speckled and honest.

With breath broken over your

splintered lip,

A tavern roars inside your eggshell body.

Your stagnant feet are boats, marooned in ice.

Beneath your nose is acrid fruit, rotting.

from FILM NOTES ON A GOD WHO DREAMS WITH THE SKY PAINTED NEON: A Documentary

 

Aging is just learning new definitions for numbers. Is changing

numerical figures to human ones.

“Hell Nope”: Jordan Peele, Zombies, and the Legacy of Voyeurism in the Black Horror Tradition

by everett bonner

The horror genre has long been used to expose deep societal anxieties, based on our greatest fears of chaos, unease, mystery, and gore. The frightful suspense of horror films, however, can often prove too intense for many viewers to handle, leaving the genre fairly inaccessible to a wide audience.

How We Choose to See Cassie Thomas Matters

by madeline wasson

While the trailer for Promising Young Woman might lead you to believe that main character Cassie (Carey Mulligan) is merely a woman tricking unsupposing sexual predators into attempting to assault her while she feigns intoxication, her character is much more complex than that. This is something which becomes more apparent as her background, and prior experiences with sexual assault, are revealed.
