"Death Comes to Me Again, A Girl", by Dorianne Laux
"I left Belize when I was 12 or 13, just as all my friends were getting swept up into gangs. The gangs would get kids to do the dirty work, because they knew the kids wouldn’t go to jail. I actually have an old photograph of the group of friends I used to hang out with— there were seven us. After I came to America, they were all killed in the exact order that they were standing in that photograph."
"There’s a fine line between a stream of consciousness and a babbling brook to nowhere."
Dan Harmon (via havingchanged)
"The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned."
Antonio Gramsci (via apoetreflects)
And she looks like the moon. So close and yet, so far
She says everything
She knows me too well
"What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story."
F. Scott Fitzgerald (via bornreadygeneration)
