Katie Makkai - Pretty
National Poetry Slam 2002
All about being pretty.
I mean I don't care either way.
Why, you're not a lesbian, it won't affect you.
It'll affect some of the people I care about, and that affects me.
"fuck it; we’re all the beautiful, radiant cockroaches of a terrible and free universe, right?"
What is an Analemma?
An analemma is the figure “8″ loop that results when one observes the position of the sun at the same time during the day over the course of a year. Due to the earth’s tilt about its axis (23.45°) and its elliptical orbit about the sun, the location of the sun is not constant from day to day when observed at the same time on each day over the course of a full year. Furthermore, this loop will be inclined at different angles depending on one’s geographical latitude.

Marina Abramovic meets Ulay
“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
Researchers say people may wrongly predict their behavior in embarrassing situations because of an “empathy gap” with their future selves.
Perspective, it’s a thing.
