"They call us now.
Before they drop the bombs.
The phone rings
and someone who knows my first name
calls and says in perfect Arabic
“This is David.”
And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
still smashing around in my head
I think “Do I know any Davids in Gaza?”
They call us now to say
Run.
You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
Your house is next.
They think of it as some kind of
war time courtesy.
It doesn’t matter that
there is nowhere to run to.
It means nothing that the borders are closed
and your papers are worthless
and mark you only for a life sentence
in this prison by the sea
and the alleyways are narrow
and there are more human lives
packed one against the other
more than any other place on earth
Just run.
We aren’t trying to kill you.
It doesn’t matter that
you can’t call us back to tell us
the people we claim to want aren’t in your house
that there’s no one here
except you and your children
who were cheering for Argentina
sharing the last loaf of bread for this week
counting candles left in case the power goes out.
It doesn’t matter that you have children.
You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
to nowhere.
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
Run."

🙈 sometimes that 2nd line is one of the same… But that’s none of my bussssinessss lol😂😂😂 Anyways , they forgot to add but the strong survive while the others play themselves out.😏👏-maj

The strong take a lot of work. It’s really tough to fight a constant battle against the non-committal idea of "…but what if I started something (new) with blablabla?" in sidechick saturated life. Or sideguy. Add layers of social media access to the cake accordingly.
All previous frogs kissed can go suck all the hot air they want over their flaky sidebits. How’m I feeling? Still pregnant. Good morning.

Pregnancy stuff no one tells you

At 34 weeks nipples can leak colostrum overnight. I wake up in the morning with trails of what looks like “sleep” from my eyes stuck to my biceps -_-

I really miss Australian grocer stores. I love that they’re independently owned & run, they are usually walking distance from local houses and NOT in a shopping mall

Super duperly inspired by arijandro's art style and their comic's titled the woeventures of woe cat after having this conversation with a certain adult in my life. 
I hope you don’t mind me drawing like this, ari//// your art inspires me in times of trouble sorry;;;
