you call me a star,
but a star is not as I want
to be seen by you

why would I want
to be a star
when I could be
be the dust that settles
after its passing

why would i wish to be
something that could never
touch you, to be a thin light
so far away from you;
to be yet another
yellow light
for you to place
your frail hopes upon

I could be what fills your lungs
in every instant,
when I could be
what kisses you first every morning,
leaving hard to see fingerprints
in the strands your hair
and covers you in
darkness; knowing every part of
you, and loving you
all the same

I would not care if you only
ever saw me in the light shining
through the blinds of
of the afternoon sun -
if you could only notice me
and smile
in that moment
and say that I looked beautiful
just then
even if in every other, you cleaned
off the dust
that rested on the ornaments
and books on your
shelves, with little thought towards
me at all

I do not want to be a seen as a star
but as the quiet calamity that
comes after it all.

I want to be the dust that waits
with you
to become a star

dust gives birth to stars, and stars give way to dust

It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). 
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.



this is pretty remarkable

A friend of mine shared this post on Twitter today about something one of her friend’s witnessed in NYC last night, and I felt it was important for us to post it on here - as a way of both getting the word out and seeing if anyone has any way of helping the situation (blogging, writing an article, knowledge of a missing person, etc.) Please share if you can - there has to be something we can do to help. It is possible to get in touch with the original source - please first email it to and we will forward it to her. 

Jesus fucking Christ.

Jesus fucking Christ.

If possible, never, ever let someone leave like this. If you can offer the cabbie money to not go. Insist that the woman, man, child that is being abducted stays with you. DO NOT LET THEM GO.
