Just New Black Things #5




letting strangers touch your hair

#justnewblackthings :)

this new trend makes me so sad. when/where did this start?

it’s satire of pharell’s “new black” comments don’t be sad ;)

ahh i see. it’s just that my friends and i started an arts collective for lgbtq+ black artists in philly called “the new black” a couple years ago. choosing that name for us was our way of saying there’s no such thing as “the new black”.. so obviously, seeing all”#thenewblack” posts had me feelin worried. 

but do yr thing, tumblr.

i love physical touch.  like not even kissing and stuff just like.  sitting next to each other with our arms touching or our legs overlapping or walking next to each other with our arms brushing i love knowing im real i love existing with people i love it

when im feeling not present, i ask my friend if im real and they let me touch their arm & their face so i remember that they’re real and im real and we both exist in the world. that stuff is so important.

sorry i suck at tumblr. 

here are two pics of my new tattoos to make up for it. well, i say new.. i’ve had them for almost two months now. triangle on my right arm & a basquiat crown on the back of my right thigh & “brat” on my left thigh. 

maybe i’ll get my babe to take a better butt pic for me to put online later.

"Letting go" by Gloria Anzaldúa


It’s not enough
deciding to open.

You must plunge your fingers
into your navel, with your two hands
split open,
spill out the lizards and horned toads
the orchids and the sunflowers,
turn the maze inside out.
Shake it.

Yet, you don’t quite empty.
Maybe a green phlegm

sves sent me a mini-zine w an excerpt of this poem and it made me think a lot.
