no ill will or interest in slandering anyone’s work, i consider everyone in this image an ‘influence’ and most if not all are my friends, however this is a petition for my name to be added to the ‘alternative literature’ wikipedia page as a call for ‘affirmative action’ to some degree
because of /things like this/ i have felt consistently alienated, critically preoccupied goal-wise, and have therefore been unable to produce work that would have, perhaps, seemed otherwise ‘noteworthy’
contact me for evidence that i have written things and made significant contributions over time, i am simply demanding to be seen because producing work, being kind, and ‘running the damn show’ seem like ‘not enough’
thank you for your time and consideration
ongoing open facebook group discussion re this
I wrote this nuts sounding poem at 4am last night… I was up late doing work, thinking about when my friend Jack and I would pull all nighters in college and he would listen to Joni Mitchell in this particular way when morning was coming on. I think it made him feel less crazy, less up-all-night-y. What do you think about when you try to be less crazy?

“My name is Jess. I have been playing Final Fantasy 7 since 1999. Not constantly, but it’s been a part of my life since then. It inadvertently caused me to find my husband, it makes me smile, and it frustrates me. I think it is beautiful in its own way, and wanted to show you that beauty. If you haven’t played it, these poems are for you—if you’ve played it, that’s even better. They need no prior knowledge of the game. They are just a little present I made you.”

Stop this. Selfies aren’t empowering; they’re a high tech reflection of the fucked up way society teaches women that their most important quality is their physical attractiveness.
