a few hairs by d. marvi
my relationship with my unibrow is tempestuous. some days i hide it away, plucking out each hair with hatred. others, i smooth it down lovingly with rosewater and feed it coconut oil at night to hasten it’s growth. these hairs are one of the many ways i’m navigating my own body while i navigate the liminal space of diaspora. my unibrow evokes both the racial privileged of the homeland and and the racial alienation of the hostland. painting my unibrow gold can be seen as an act of beautification and self-acceptance. conversely, it can be seen as self-orientalization, or, making a prominent physical sign of my racial “otherness” even more so. or, simply, it could be an innocent whimsy. i choose to keep the meaning of this as ambiguous as possible, to mimic my own fluid, love-hate relationship with my unibrow.

mama finally got a job interview 😎

mama finally got a job interview 😎

Salome dances her dance of the seven veils,
The men all eye her like wolves on the hunt, this beautiful girl
finally undressing for them. Finally they can see her
exactly as they want to.
The first veil drops.

In 2007, Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend
released their sex tape against her will.
Kim Kardashian, rather than hide in shame
Used the publicity to promote her own career.

Salome moves like a dream half-remembered.
Salome dances like a siren song. All the men ache
to see the hot sugar of her hip bones.
The second veil drops.

In 2014, Kim Kardashian walks down the aisle
As the whole world watches. If only all of us
were so successful in our revenge.
If only all of us stood in our Louboutin heels
on the backs of the men who betray us,
surveying the world we created for ourselves.

The third veil drops.

Kim Kardashian knows exactly what you think of her.
She presses the cloth tighter against her skin
Her smile is a promise she never intends to keep

We can almost see all of her.
Salome shows us her body
but never her eyes.
The fourth veil is dropping.

The four things most recently tweeted at Kim Kardashian were
@KimKardashian Suck My Dick
@Kim Kardashian Can I Meet Kanye?
@KimKardashian Please Fuck Me
@KimKardashian I Love You. I Love You.

Women are told to keep their legs shut.
Women are told to keep their mouths shut.
Some women are kept silent for so long,
They become experts in the silent theft of power.
The fifth veil has dropped.

Kim Kardashian made $12 million dollars this year
Yesterday, uncountable men in their miserable jobs,
told their miserable friends that Kim was a “dumb whore”
Kim Kardashian will never learn their names.

The sixth veil has dropped.
The seventh veil has dropped.

And Salome sat beside King Herod. And he swore unto her
“Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give to thee
unto the half of my kingdom”
And she smiled, and said
“Bring me the head of John The Baptist.
Punish the man who hurt me”

The Coalition Zine

immigrantgirls:

thecoalitionmag:

The Coalition Zine is a digital collective dedicated to putting girls of colour on the map by showcasing female writers, artists, and creators of colour on a monthly basis. The zine was created as a space dedicated solely to girls of colour, a  space where we can share our traumas, opinions, and triumphs with each other and grow together collectively. 

Recently, we got the opportunity to reach a wider audience by having the zine sold at Afropunk Fest ‘14. The only problem is our zine is digitally-based and we need to have printed copies for the zine tent at Afropunk fest. Printing enough copies will cost roughly $250. With this money, we will print enough copies to sell at Afropunk and also at local book stores, etsy, etc.

Having our zine at Afropunk Fest will show other girls of colour that don’t know about us that there’s a space dedicated to them, by people who are just like them. It will inspire girls of colour to create, write, invade creative spaces that people say we can’t be a part of because of where we come from and our skin colour. Help us reach other girls and show them that we are worth it and worthwhile. We have a very short time to raise this amount so please any donation, any amount will be greatly appreciated!

ok hi this is v important!!
