love
that is needed does not equate

love
committed to

this day in history.

one needs to point the gun often pointed at others
toward their self

sometimes
occassionally
perhaps more often
than not

to get high on life
to realize all is beautiful as is

and then suffering wouldn't be valid anymore
so we wouldn't know anything about it
and we'd wake up new people.

all you have to do is point a gun at your head.
you just need to get high on life is what's up.

we all have our means of doing it.
and now, we can do it together, for somehow, we've all contributed

at least a little
to the end (the end of listening)
during mrs. sun's final cry
(mrs. big shot) the idol
still smiling, rubbing it in

that she can smile while dying, she's
at peace, mrs.
ball of energy, mrs.
robust across the daunting sky- it's either this, or it's
the back of a box of cereal
whose clouds look like clouds at most- clearly, not a subject of mine
in my kingdom, the fantasy world
where everyone is friendly

while i hold myself together on wishful thinking

that this is all just brain damage. better be.

intentions are well-meaning, at least, the parts
we know about them, the parts
we're able to digest,
and if we tried more, we'd discover
more than we can possibly handle.

don't we all
have this in common- the passing of the pipe,
the seed you smoke. exhibition
of trust.

together. together forever! like guys in a rock band.
counting on enormous roots to
catch me
cradling me as part of the planet.

seeds born of shiva's tears
of the fruit tree he cried under
in my jewelry draw.

it's good to admit they're there.

"[...]above all, plagiarism is the reappropriation of ideas: when an individual plagiarizes a text which those who believe in intellectual property would have held "sacred," she denies that there is a difference in rank between herself and the thinker she takes from. She takes the thinker's ideas for herself, to express them as she sees fit, rather than treating the thinker as an authority whose work she is duty-bound to preserve as he intended. She denies, in fact, that there is a fundamental difference between the thinker and the rest of humanity, by appropriating the thinker's material as the property of humanity.
"

crimethinc. has been so responsible a catalyst for much of my daring, and my curiosity in freedom, that i shamelessly deify my love by binding their (?) words in quotes, in spite of a shared stance against "intellectual property". it's an expression from myself as a child being taught to moralize, through persistent shaming- who demands freedom.

i do not know my self, and my exploration of life through it, without the echo of personified impressions.

mixed media candles.

i am now offering homemade candles to anyone kind to help me with my portfolio, as a thank you (sallyshapiro.smugmug.com). i have unscented beeswax and soy candles up for grabs. i repurpose frequently, when it can be done, including waxes. please note, some of these are not functional, and would work well as things to look at rather than things to burn and i wish very much that the latter will not be attempted. now that that point has come across, so has an idea- i will dig up the wax in those particular pieces, so one can feel free to use them to grow baby plants in, or whatever else they please. : )
please traverse the catalogue at the site to see what options are available as far as stuff one can acquire that my visual works would be printed on. the prices are reasonable, in my opinion.


thank you for tolerating my advertisement, and for the support.

philosophy major.

"Sexual desire is not a desire for sensations. It is a desire for a person: and I mean a person, not his or her body, conceived as an object in the physical world, but the person conceived as an incarnate subject, in whom the light of self-consciousness shines and who confronts me eye to eye, and I to I.
"
