A surge, a lapse, the flicker of a screen,
and every ninety minutes the entire universe
is blanked out and rescanned. Your city is lifted slightly
and resettled, scattering sparrows. Were those clouds
just there, is she really the one
you were talking to?—everything’s subtly different,
though when you try to prove it

memories are altered, witnesses conflict,
and since the cosmos, anyway, has a long tradition
of insuperable habit, conservation of energy,
the changes can be undetectably small:
half empty becomes half full, shame
a little less, or more, and just when it seems
you’re about to get it … the day reslants,
[…]
old faces alter in new light, new faces
pick up so seamlessly midsentence,
as if they’d always known you,

that maybe you don’t even notice,
as I didn’t.

James Richardson, from “Fast Forward,” During (Copper Canyon Press, 2016)

amayzing-mayzie  asked:

does your crutch say strike,??????

Sure does! The very same banner from the strike! Still don’t know who Andy Richardson or Joey Barreiro or Stephen Langton or anyone else is, but when Davey found it to bring it back to me, it was all signed up!

[ Or, Hiccup got the toursies to sign it and has yet to make a new unsigned banner for her cosplay! 8D]

Clara: “- Woohoocking bitch! Never *boff* go near *bam* my family again *wham*!
Sierra: “- Step away from her, Clara, I got her! Call the ambulance, Dave!”
Clara: “- Bjorn? Oh my plumbbob! Bjorn! He’s bleeding! Do something!”
Sierra, to Babs: “ - Just give me a reason…”
Dave: “- The ambulance is on it’s way!”

Clara: “ - She stabbed him! *sobs uncontrollably* Oh Bjorn!

“YOU DESERVED SO MUCH MORE, LITTLE FLOWER. YOU DESERVED A WAKANDA THAT CHERISHED YOU.”
Writer ROXANE GAY (Bad Feminst, Hunger) spins a Wakandan love story – its tenderness matched only by its brutality. You know them now as The Midnight Angels, but in this story they are just Ayo and Aneka, young women recruited to become Dora Milaje, an elite task force trained to protect the crown at all costs. What happens when your nation needs your hearts and minds, but you already gave them to each other? Illustrated by industry veteran ALITHA E. MARTINEZ (Iron Man, Black Panther).
And in a special backup story, acclaimed poet YONA HARVEY (Hemming the Water) explores the true origins of The People’s mysterious leader Zenzi. Black Panther thinks he knows who Zenzi is and how she got her powers, but he only knows part of the story… Illustrated by rising star AFUA RICHARDSON (Genius).

I read this book 2 years ago.  If you haven’t, you need to!  Richardson researched not only biblical prophecy, but also the Koran and Hadith, to present a comprehensive picture of the man both Christians and Muslims expect to arise as a leader in the last days.

Please note: What you hear in this video is the beginning of the Muslim call to prayer, the sound Barack Obama called ‘the sweetest sound I know.’
