Paul Auster, Winter Journal
"They tell me it’s important.
They tell me there are rules for girls and rules for boys.
Except society is a smart, cunning bitch.
She shows me my gender roles,
hands them to me on a worn, silver platter,
but it’s been in the family for years.
A wedding dress, passed down to you
from the great-great-grandmother you never knew you had.
They show me show me show me, until
this is just what I know.
My brother can climb and I can’t.
No language, no words to express what is right.
I am fighting an unwritten book."
They tell me it’s important, slk. (via aseriesofnouns)
wes anderson movies taught me that fucked up horrifying tragic living circumstances are no excuse not to carefully maintain a cute pastoral aesthetic at all times
