“Don’t look for shadow behind me
I carry it within
I live cycles of light and darkness
Rhythm is half silence
I see now i never was one and not the other
Sickness, health, tender, violence
I think now I never was pure” ~Suheir Hammad

Queer, Arab-American residing in Seattle, Washington. I like the smell of lentils boiling on the stove, awkward glances from strangers and pretending like I give a fuck.

I’m in Amman I bought an apple from the tiny produce place next to my house, the apple is from Washington state

Gustavo Pérez Firmat, Bilingual Blues: Poems, 1981-1994 (x)

(via wallahitsaunicorn)

The fact that I
am writing to you
in English
already falsifies what I
wanted to tell you.
My subject:
how to explain to you that I
don’t belong to English
though I belong nowhere else

I’m around too many straight people talking about marriage. Boring, where the queer people at.

White people touring the middle east is fucking annoying. This one girl is complaining about the call for prayer waking her up, stating: “I don’t need a 4 am wake up call, every time we hear it we roll our eyes”

I just wanna give her a good slap. You are in a Muslim country, you are a guest, have some fucking respect, if you do not like it go back to England.

P.s. she take hummus and puts it on bread like she is buttering toast. WTF……

Our brothers and sisters in solidarity with Palestine at the University of Michigan have occupied the Central Student Government chambers and are now holding a sit-in indefinitely.

Please pray for them.
