these images are not *empowering* and no, not even in an ironic sense.
“Life being in this society, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.”
– Valerie Solanas
the city grows from marsh ground beneath my feet. I leave trails on the pavement.
the forrest nymph wraps herself in clean sheets, she can’t breathe and she screams of relief
until plastic structures vibrate and collapse
in perfect squares of chaos.
I pass blocks of cracked sand and glass crystals, mountain towers and halls of moss.
unclear lanterns in the sky, disguised by fog or smoke from the fire eyes of
outside red painted bars,
all waiting for the final fall.
