Here it is, folks, don’t let people tell you that “wage gap” is just a statistical game. I talked with a (male) coworker about it in hopes of enlightening a dim mind, but all he did was tell me how untrue it was and how the statistics are designed to look a certain way. Easy for you to say….
These sad stories will always weigh on me, though that burden lessens the more I realize who I am and what I am worth.
Maybe if I started telling my stories, I could learn these things, too. What am I helping by remaining silent?
I will not adjust myself to the world. I am adjusted to myself.

I don’t give two splats of an old negro junkie’s vomit for your politico-philosophical treatises, kiddies. I like noise. I like big-ass vicious noise that makes my head spin. I wanna feel it whipping through me like a fucking jolt. We’re so dilapidated and crushed by our pathetic existence we need it like a fix.
