dark & holy

dark & holy

Oh and Juliana if you read this—

I tried to be a peasant looking at a picture of an angel but I couldn’t believe in love until I got to the creation of the animals

—how they launch into life from out of the void,

blind—all of history ahead of them—and that’s when I thought of you—like do those robins ever settle in at night and just think Best. Nest. Ever

That’s the subject of this poem

excerpt from “THE DIAL” 

"HETERONOMY" CHRIS NEALON

Building an Ark for the Anthropocene
by Jim Robbins
We are barreling into the Anthropocene, the sixth mass extinction in the history of the planet. A recent study published in the journal Science concluded that the world’s species are disappearing as much as 1,000 times faster than the rate at which species naturally go extinct. It’s a one-two punch — on top of the ecosystems we’ve broken, extreme weather from a changing climate causes even more damage. By 2100, researchers say, one-third to one-half of all Earth’s species could be wiped out.
As a result, efforts to protect species are ramping up as governments, scientists and nonprofit organizations try to build a modern version of Noah’s Ark. The new ark certainly won’t come in the form of a large boat, or even always a place set aside. Instead it is a patchwork quilt of approaches, including assisted migration, seed banks and new preserves and travel corridors based on where species are likely to migrate as seas rise or food sources die out…

I think white gay people feel cheated because they were born, in principle, in a society in which they were supposed to be safe. The anomaly of their sexuality puts them in danger, unexpectedly. Their reaction seems to me in direct proportion to their sense of feeling cheated of the advantages which accrue to white people in a white society. There’s an element, it has always seemed to me, of bewilderment and complaint. Now that may sound very harsh, but the gay world as such is no more prepared to accept black people than anywhere else in society.
