Civil Rights Protest prep. Hair pulling and blowing smoke in her face to prepare her for the experience of sitting in restaurants that were not willing to serve people of color.
That’s right kids, this was on purpose. Rosa Parks was not just some old lady who didn’t want to stand up for a white man. She was a carefully selected and trained activist with a purpose for change.

roses are red
being an adult sucks
i’m not prepared for this no one taught me how to do anything

When your hands turn from the strong willed beasts they are today, and become the embers of a withering fire, even then, I will not run. I will hold you tenderly as you pass into the night.
Sometimes we hold hands when we fuck
because we can be as rough as we want
with each other’s bodies
but me holding your hand is my way of reminding you
that I’m nothing but gentle with your heart.
