John Berger Ways of Seeing
#it’s okay to follow creepshots but when a celebrity’s nudes are leaked she’s a slut #it’s perfectly normal to watch objectifying porn but when a woman decides to film herself having sex she’s a whore #it’s alright for you to harass women on the street but when they approach you first it’s arrogance #it’s cool for you to fantasize about a woman who’s out of your league but when a woman you deem unattractive likes you you’re disgusted #no don’t worry you can make female bodies public property but when they discuss your masturbation habits you can be offended
The Mamas & The Papas | Dream a Little Dream of Me
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you—-
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be,
Dream a little dream of me.
I keep pushing doors that very clearly read
into you —
I’m so cold.
I’ve only ever sought out rules
to confirm that I’d already broken them.
And I always have the last word,
I’m throwing you words
like misguided flat stones
skipping across the ponds
of our shallow mistake of a forest.
But I’ve always found the wooded jungle
of your mind
to be as mystical
as tiny stars who don’t realize
that they are a center of a little girl’s world
as she projects them onto
her bedroom ceiling;
as she reaches for them,
they disappear into
her own shadow.
