some guy yesterday was sitting in my lounge room and he said to me “don’t talk to your mother like that in front of me” because i swore at her and I went in. I was like i’ll talk how I please, I don’t know you, I don’t know why you think you have the right to tell me how to speak especially in my own house to my own mum who btw taught me how to swear. If you have a problem with it you can get the fuck off my arm chair and out my door. 

And my mum was like “yea, cunt”

i’ve learned all new work has a push back. it’s nah even new work, but something like challenging or rare. it’s nah even rare, just work that isn’t popular or selling. that heart work. always a push back from the world. like how dare you. who do you think you are how would you feel. also you should know better. when push back comes from men it feels biblical & right even. when it comes from women. it just breaks fucking hearts. bossa. suheir hammad.

i have a mic & a stage & am expected nah to share it. nah to ask who came before me & what can i do for the next? it’s set up so we look ahead at flood lights & nah around us at the stars. bossa. suheir hammad (via bossasuheirhammad)
