thank you so much! i loved the poem, thank you for introducing me to it. i read it out here.
If I was dead,
and my bones adrift
like dropped oars
in the deep, turning earth;
and my skull
a listening shell
on the dark ocean bed;
if I was dead,
and my heart
for a red, red rose;
and my body
a fistful of grit, thrown
in the face of the wind;
if I was dead,
and my eyes,
blind at the roots of flowers,
wept into nothing,
I swear your love
would raise me
out of my grave,
in my flesh and blood,
hungry for this,
and this, and this,
your living kiss.
Carol Ann Duffy

hi thank you!! <3
i recited a passage from ‘this is how you lose the time war’ by max gladstone and amal el-mohtar, which i started reading yesterday. you can hear it here.
this is the passage:

Gosh, thank you so much for these friend! Sorry about the accidental and unrehearsed pansexuality treatise, in which I didn’t even really go into explaining it at all, whoops 😂
Send “A wild _ appeared!” and my muse will react
After a seemingly endless string of wild Bidoof, the last thing Kouki was expecting to run into was a legendary Pokémon. Instead of reaching for an useless item he could distract it with, this time he was hurriedly looking for a Pokéball because that was an once-in-a-lifetime chance and there was no way he was letting it go to waste.
After thinking about it a bit further, though, he remembered a previous conversation about Ho-oh. Gold did have a point back then, there were some things that humanity wasn’t meant to know about. The point of his research was always to share what he learned with everyone and help people understand the world around them a little better, so even if he caught the legendary Pokémon and studied as much about it as he could, there would be no point if he had to keep all that knowledge to himself. In fact, he’d just cause a lot of unnecessary trouble.
That didn’t stop him from taking a few pictures, though. It was an once-in-a-lifetime chance, after all, and he was going to tell all his friends about it.
Alcina: Reaper, you’re back from your hunt early.
Reaper: Forest’s haunted.
