I need something good to happen in my life!
“I know you have a habit of speaking in safe words. I know speaking your mind is hard because your mind has been twisted and manipulated to be a million other things, but never yours. I know you have a habit of running, of turning away, of hiding, of losing yourself. I know you are terrified of what it means to be in love. I know love has been temporary and has been twisted and manipulated to be a million other things, but never yours. So, here is what I am going to do. I won’t ever tell you I love you, I will just say, “You are safe here.” When you feel the need to get away for a weekend, know I will be here when you come back, just say, “Paris is missing me. The bird within my chest needs to breathe” and I will understand. When your mind is playing tricks on you and you have started to get confused about who you are, cave into me. Let your fears pour into my skin, let my collar bone collect you and keep you safe. Let my hands guide you, let my hands become you, let my hands do what yours cannot. I won’t ever tell you I love you, I will just say, “You are safe here.” You are safe here. You are safe here. You are safe here. You are safe here. You are safe here. You are safe here.”

Choi Xoo Ang’s Disturbing Sculptures
Choi Xoo Ang, the Seoul born artist and dark master of the imagination, has created sculptures at once hyperrealistic and completely nightmarish, making you feel as if your real life has bled into an inescapable, bad dream.
Twisted tongues, stitched backs and floating heads appear throughout Choi’s polymer clay figures, which display remarkable realism despite their fabulous content. Many of the pieces give metaphorical shape to real issues in modern day Korea, including human rights and abuse.
These are fantastic
when your jealous new girl asks what you did last summer, go easy on her.
tell her you took a vacation, but assure her i was only a trip.
i was a little bump on the sidewalk, an accident hooked on the strap of your sandal. i won’t leave a scar, even underneath your toenails. listen, your new girl, please tell her,
she has the posture of the old oak in your backyard
while i have the stance of a palm tree. tell her you never once believed in me.
tell her she is an attic with too many boxes to unpack, that she is every one of your grandmother’s rose embroidered antiques, that she has wind chimes in her laugh.
and i am the crumbled receipts in you wallet, tell her how sloppy i am, that i guffaw like an alcoholic.
tell her i am frantic staggering around in the dark,
a brace for impact in an unfamiliar hallway
and she is your porch light turning on, an oh
thank God, thank God, thank God.
tell her i am the shitty repetitive pop song you enjoyed hearing once
and now turn off as soon as you hear recognize it
with a groan in your throat
tell her how i am a boat
with holes in the bottom, and no lifejacket.
tell her i am a disappointment.
tell her she is homemade
and i am store-bought.
tell her that she is calligraphy, that she writes better poetry,
that she is vows handwritten in icing on a five layer wedding cake.
tell her i why i didn’t last. that i only prepared your mouth make your first kiss more enjoyable,
tell her i am an after dinner mint.
tell her she wears you as effortlessly as she wears a sundress, as she dances, as she resembles a daisy
tell her i am made up of costume jewelry, of rhinestones
tell her i am synthetic, tell her i am crazy.
tell her you lost my number in the sea, i am the girl you met once and forget to call.
tell her that when she first gave you her number, you couldn’t even bare to separate it from your fingers long enough to put it in your pocket, for fear of some improbable bad luck.
tell her how you thought you couldn’t bare if you lost it.
tell her she is ancestral. tell her you look at her like she is a castle.
tell her i am a carton of milk with an expiration date stamped across my plastic surface; burdensome, spoiling, space-taker, invader, worthless.
tell her when she sings you can hear yourself begin
tell her she is all of the places you never thought you would get to go.
tell her i am where you’ve already been
and won’t go back to again.
So powerful is gravity:
that our seasons are
that planets move
in such strange ways
that the planet’s core
stays centered and warm
that earth does not
float away from the sun
that life orbits
around its uses
and can dissolve
from its consequences
that a coin
may be lethal
that a naturally occurring
landscape can be dangerous
that airplanes are
something to fear
that it pulls rocks
from the sky
that an age of great
and an age of mammals
that it has something to do
with every bit of history
that the arrow to strike achilles
was aimed above his ankle
and the bullet to hit kennedy
was aimed above his head
that the bombs dropped on
cities are needed to fall
that the water evaporated
is needed to fall
that the fruits of trees
are needed to fall
and if you believe in
adam and eve
then god created gravity
before creating humanity
we would discover time
and even if you dont believe in
adam and eve
you must know that
it all started as a black hole
and became the universe
through an explosion of gravity
that the universe is expanding
and will contract to being a black hole
you must know that
gravity bends time
and that under extreme circumstances,
gravity even breaks time completely
that if a god exists
it exists inside gravity
and that ultimately,
gravity is destiny.
