my week in objects (mostly).

June 3, 2022

1. finding the perfect liquid measuring cup.

{after two years without one.}

2. this stack of scraps.

{waiting to be turned into something else.}

3. this ruler.

{for helping me out.}

4. this basil.

{for being so green.}

5. this perfect basket.

{for alliums and other things.}

other things:

melt them down and make a monument to the dead from the molten steel.

a public orgy of misogyny.

he was taking form in front of me and was already beyond my idea of him.

porcelain new york.

hype-free weather.

    As a survivor of domestic abuse, I have felt the last few days like reality and nightmare have gotten confused. Thank you for linking to the article about the trial. The internet’s persistent waves of misogyny have been triggering and isolating to me, and this is the first moment I have felt not quite so alone in my pain.
