Fractures

Fractures

Out of all the things that have held my attention in these years of life, love remains at the forefront. In my quiet moments, I consider the nature of it, the effect it has, and should have and the many translations of it I have come across within this existence. A burning question that has plagued me since the end of what appears to be my imagined last great love is, “What is the difference between romantic love and platonic love?”This question was born from the experience of my last...
Manifest Destiny

Manifest Destiny

It was the year 2019, and many realizations and stark discoveries of myself threatened to drown me; among those already listed comes another that still dances about my mind to this day, till this very moment in fact, and so I write.  This particular realization came upon me quite suddenly dressed in garments of utter detachment; I couldn't say that life itself had begun to bore me, it was more of the shock of knowing that I was no longer happy and also being burdened with the knowledge that I...
The Evolution of A Hoe

The Evolution of A Hoe

Artwork by Hanson Akatti; Edited by Frank Selasie.---In the past few years, I have come across a profound change within myself and with my relationship with sex, love, and general romantic affection. These changes became glaringly evident in the past year, specifically when I attempted to heal gaping wounds within my soul with the same methods I had employed in my early twenties; that is to say, when I tried using dick as a tourniquet for my gouged emotional arteries.At the turn of puberty, my relationship with sex took a...
Marriage As The Death Of A Woman

Marriage As The Death Of A Woman

Another essay written for my literature course, it amused my professor exponentially. She's convinced I'm going to be an award-winning author as a result. It has been updated with consideration for the wayward desires of the heart.---When the topic of marriage comes up we as human beings are inclined to automatically romanticize it because of a centuries-long propaganda campaign to transform the traditional definition of love from its patriarchal reality to a Disney version of a story of love & connubial felicitation. The fact is that marriage for love is...
The Art of Glamour Comfort

The Art of Glamour Comfort

This piece was written a year ago for my literature course, I find it apt to share it all with you now considering we appear to be in the midst of an apocalypse. It better explains my notion of glamour comfort and my developing understanding of beauty, choice, and death. It has been slightly edited and updated for your present-day consumption. ---Having been obsessed with fashion for what seems like all of my existence, I have run into the repetitive motif of “Beauty is pain” in almost the entirety of my...
The Product & The Consumer.

The Product & The Consumer.

So what is this? The return of a return that I have lived 1000 times & in 1000 different ways? A cliched rendition of excuses & fabled distractions?Or the simple musings of a mind that knows it's words are loved?I am in a different place then I was , I am always in a different place. It seems like a nomadic heart cannot be adequately satisfied with geographical commitment, the method of movement changes entirely to compensate for physical stagnation. So it seems that since I cannot yet leave the...
