ok so I’m going to leave out stuff that’s Too Obvious, which means a lot of this is niche (to me) or contemporary, and… I recently had a canary on twitter about how much ~*~modern~*~ poetry GETS MY GOAT. I’m reading a lot of New poets/collections this year purely because I… didn’t really read that much contemporary stuff before, and I thought I should branch out. (so far I’m dubious.) so, yes – obviously Plath, Blake, Hughes, Sappho, Eliot, Keats, Shelley, etc. etc. ad nauseum, The Greats, yadda yadda, here’s some others.
so far this year I’ve read (and ENJOYED - I’m not reccing the ones I wasn’t into/thought were pants, soz):
Letters From Medea by Salma Deera
Grief Is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter
Hold Your Own by Kate Tempest (I actually LOVED this)
Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine von Radics
War of the Foxes by Richard Siken (of YOU’RE SITTING IN A CAR WITH A BEAUTIFUL BOY, AND HE WON’T TELL YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU, BUT HE LOVES YOU fame)
I’ve also read and loved:
Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth by Warsan Shire
The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton
The Curse of the Vampire’s Socks and Other Doggerel by Terry Jones
Love Poems by Carol Ann Duffy
Let Us Compare Mythologies by Leonard Cohen
my personal 10/10 all-time go-tos are:
Crush by Richard Siken (despite appearing on every single tumblr graphic between 2011 and 2013, it still gets me in the heart guts)
The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy (which I have loved wholeheartedly since I was 17 years old)
pretty much any collection of Great War poetry: Up the Line to Death, Men Who March Away, Lads: Love Poetry of the Trenches (the Great War poets are my favourite. like, of all poetry, ever)
my favourite individual poems, as we’re on the subj, are:
As much as I liked the reunion, is it bad that I was kind of annoyed about everyone praising Bangel? Like I don't have a problem with people liking bangel, but they only talk about spuffy as an unhealthy relationship and not about spike post-soul? I mean at the end of season 7, their relationship seemed a lot healthier than Buffy and Angel ever was. Plus in the comics right now, which is meant to be canon, Buffy and Spike are in a happy, healthy relationship. It just felt one-sided to me.
tbh, I didn’t mind it all that much because I was way too elated to see them all back together again. But… the first thing I saw regarding the reunion was the cover, and I immediately thought: “I guess the EW people are Bangel shippers, then.” It kinda rubbed me the wrong way. And I’m not saying this as a Spuffy shipper myself. I wouldn’t have liked to see Spuffy on the cover either.
I would’ve liked to see Buffy alone or the four main Scoobies.
That was what the show was about, the ships were secondary.
Milk Time has the ability to create amalgams of anything the stand touches and/or as well having the power to divide certain materials back to it’s original state OR to equalize how much something has.
The division of the “original state” can also be used in the own stand user, as if the stand user is injected with poison, the stand could reach into the veins of the user, using the same hole and pushing out the poison out, like Jonathan did at one point, pushing out Dio’s blood out.
Milk generally has a long range thanks to his ability to divide and multiply, it’s a long-range stand mainly. The speed is as it can combine compounds in a short amount of time.
OOH H H H HH H H FUCK! !!!!!!!!!!!
“Milk Time” is a much much better name than just milk way to GO
What a GREAT way to make equalization of pringle dust sound badass
