About Eva

OVER WINE by Wisława Szymborska He glanced, gave me extra charm and I took it as my own. Happily I gulped a star. I let myself be invented, modeled on my own reflection in his eyes.

I dance, dance inside my stunned skin, in his arms that create me. Eve from the rib, Venus from foam, Minerva from Jupiter's head- all three were more real than me. When he isn't looking at me, I try to catch my reflection on the wall. And see the nail where a picture used to be.

The Ironic Manipulation of Popular Culture, of Why We Should Worry About Karmin

Popular culture has induced women to literally beg for sex. I’m not exaggerating. I may be wrong, but from my modest education I cannot recall any time period or culture that drove women to this level. I’m pretty sure the … Continue reading
