Dreamt that Michelle Obama gave me a bottle of prescription pills and when people asked me where I got it and I said “Obama” they assumed I meant that I got it covered through my “Obamacare” insurance plan and I was so disappointed that they didn’t know I was Michelle’s cousin and I babysat her children and she loved me. And there was a cat who stood on two legs in the road on my way to Michelle’s house and it would raise its “arms” and underneath them were Christmas lights that looked like wings but were only visible when the cat wanted to expose them and then I found out that the cat was really a girl in a costume and I GASPED and I kept asking everyone, “But that was a GREAT costume, right? That really looked like a cat?” And everyone shook their heads and gave me a “very obviously no” look and I could tell they were pitying my naïveté and I thought “If only they knew that Michelle Obama is my cousin and she gives me free drugs. If they only knew.” It was my solace.

I’m so excited

But I’ll probably hide it

I will maintain control

Whether or not you like it

Repeat chorus!

May I say something perhaps contro

So you are born a man and you’ve been relaxing on the top rung for centuries

Then women start to climb

Do you not, from behind your myriad human weaknesses and fears, naturally balk and buck, at this two-legged/two-armed but wholly Other creature, at the risk of losing your comfort and control, to it?

Perhaps slightly comparable to the way that many mainstreamed or widely-admired or hardly-marginalized individuals balk and buck at “nerds” who are now deemed to be sexy?

The fittest’s fear of relinquishing the top rung.

Is there not always a race to the top?

Is there not always a top?

Feminism strives for equality, but humanity strives for competition.

If we divided society into two new main categories, one would, fairly quickly, recognize its counterparts, band together, and attempt to trump the other.

I recognize equality as being calming and competition as being fire-starting and I recognize a place inside each human for both feelings.

So, find how you are marginalized and rage against it, because some raging-against of some thing that you don’t agree with that is being put upon you, is healthy.

And find an arena in which you are treated as an equal, in every way you’d like to be considered an equal, because that feeling of oneness is healthy too.

If the work week wasn’t Monday-Friday for so many, would there be an uptick of louder music in the apartments next to ours’ on Friday nights? Would people still make elaborate or at least —freeing— plans that spanned twelves hours over the course of two days, once a week?

Would we plan and cheer-up and save and spend and deck-out the way we do for the “holidays” if they happened more often than once a year?

I’m just thinking about this for a moment while trying to identify to two bands I hear blaring through two widows, because they’re loud enough for me to try to identify them, and the noise isn’t even hinting at bothersome because I know there is a community consensus that the “work” is over for a couple of days. I know it’s not over for everyone, but there’s still that community consensus.

The appeal of any sort of H O L I D A Y for me is about community consensus.

It’s Friday Night Italicized. Tonight the whole block has agreed that it’s Friday Night Italicized.

Now, if your individual Friday Night is on, say, a Monday—if you find yourself saying “today is my Friday” on a Wednesday or something—you wouldn’t turn your music up this loud. Polite solitude. Considerate differentiation.

The fellowship of the noise is what I’m basking in right now.

"This is my truth" is my truth!!!

"This is my truth" is my truth!!!

My name is Ani. I am a teacher of students who are referred to as having "special" needs, but really, they're just pros at getting all their needs met. Everyone is advanced in a remarkable way. I have an idea and a plan that will change the public school system and I have started trying to make documentaries.
