xerox

the anger you made me feel
as you minimized the life
of that woman who had
been raped and murdered
reducing it – her
to nothing more than a media event

tears me in half and duplicates itself

fuck the media

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.

    I love this, its so powerful and enraged. serial killers have no remorse. I wonder if they start life in the media…

  • it’s amazing the callousness that people have… and sometimes those that think they are being normal don’t realize how far from normal they are in their perception of life. xxx

    what story does this refer to babe? it’s concise & powerful.

  • it’s more of a generalization of how our culture (well, here in the usa), the people and media, categorize and distance themselves from victims and crime. thank you so much.

    This happens all too frequently – leaving us both enraged and feeling helpless to do anything about it. What a powerful piece!!

  • so true lianne… what a world we’ve dwindled to. thankfully there are still a strong group of feelers that remind everyone about sensitive, compassion, empathy, and love. you are one. xxx

    sad…i think if i found myself in a profession that allowed (or even forced) me to reduce a rape victim to mere words, i would have to find another profession……

  • you know, i couldn’t have said it better myself. xxx

    the media is full of soulless bastards only interested in furthering their careers on the backs of others suffering, the fire in this piece should be turned on those soulless bastards and the victims of the media should be allowed to watch the media burn alive (sorry, the media just pisses me off at times)…incredibly powerful writing, awesome piece…

  • your fire combined with my fire might possibly be able to incinerate them all! love the passion you’re giving me here, love that you feel what i feel.
