Incitement to rape?


A Faded Romantic's Notebook


I have published this post five times before, but there is never a wrong time to post it again.

First posted September 1st 2015

Sometimes I get serious

It seems an ageing female rock star recently suggested in an interview with one of our sad excuses for a serious newspaper that women/girls who dress provocatively should expect to be molested – or worse – by men.

I can only believe she was misquoted – I haven’t read the article so I will give her the benefit of the doubt.

But let me be quite clear.

What a woman or girl wears is entirely her business. It can be sexy and revealing. It can be wild and kinky, It can be ‘slutty’ and sultry. It doesn’t matter. It is entirely her choice. It is her choice to make without fear of harassment, without threat of misogyny, without the danger of some sad prick believing it justifies any…

Lost In Time by Sally Chan
lost in time by sally chan

I saw you at the periphery of an absentmindedly hour.
Perceiving that, I’ve decided for good to not want you
anymore in my mind at the borderline of another hour.

I could give you thousands of minutes of reasons why
but I preferred to let words getting trundle ridiculous
among the air of love where it’s been said daily a tale.

After all, in the realm of imagination, everyone can be
replaced exactly as is replaced an image from a gallery,
an address from a city, or an old song with a new one.

while I’ve been thinking of you
tip-top, — I woke up Monday 
and Tuesday I thought to go 
Wednesday to work, but when 
I saw Thursday that comes 
Friday, I said to myself, whatta 
hell look for work on Saturday 
when Sunday is my day off…

before being a journalist
she’s been a typographer

typesetter or the linotype
wasn’t for her a secret

the ink, the font, the paper,
the offset or bookbinding

proofreader… publication,
traditional current routine

librarian even a colporteur
she was already in-between

she, —
my one and only goddess
my mom, – my unique lady

to whom I incline myself
with dedication acclaiming

my words have caught the contour of his name, —
the space between got set on fire with love, then,
i sketched his physical absence with my lungs
coupling it with darkness to dance with the light
to fill somehow the eternal emptiness which fell

some comport as if they drank
a wabbit wine
their face looks so exhausted…
with pauciloquent appearance
they try to look like thinkers

in antithesis are me and you and
in our blood flows mesmerized elixirs
our aspect don’t need excuses
is homely… is friendly…

I scream with all my lungs
and with all my other lives
related to everything I am
as a mom, woman, and wife
daughter, sister, and relative
colleague, teammate, friend
wanted, imposed and loved,
in invincible dreams entitled
Healer, Fighter, Lover or Hero
and not a stork kind, seeped
created or based in mysticism
but not on scientific visions,
Stay Home! Home is our Weapon!
Make yourself Unseen like
that thing unseen, the COVID-19
which plucked our life.

Can you talk without having
the thought of the one
which supposes of listening to you?
Doesn’t feel as if the value of your voice
puts in difficulty the brain?
And how to read the magic of stars,
when for doing this you should gaze
in the eyes of the one you love?
I wonder while I’m imagining
those enigmatic and so daring lips
of the one which knows to listen to
the words of the songs, of the one
which doesn’t push me to talk but
is watching just all that wants to hear,
the one that reads me, knowing
on what side of the syllables
I’m sleeping and how many words
I’m breathing, while the coffee is
dulcified with my poetic thrill served
at a pub known the blue cafe, a place
YaYaYa, somewhere on the milky-way
where I led you for I know what it’s like

greatest weapon is love

« I don’t wake up in the morning and say, wow I’ve got a great idea for a story. But I sit down, and I figure well, let’s see. I think people are interested in anything that’s a little bigger than life and that’s colorful and – you know, what they like? They like fairy tales for grown-ups. Singing a song, playing sports – anything that entertains, that takes people away from their own problems, is good. There is only one who is all powerful, and his greatest weapon is love. » — Stan Lee —
