“an other gaza”

in chaos one man collects

his daughter into a plastic bag

   oh my god the bag is leaking

one kisses a cave was baby boy face just this

morning braids unplaiting phosphorous

wordless exhaust smoke shock

 

what is it that remains of us now

then what is recyclable in us

 

men’s beards carry their lineage

refracted memory drones

drummed ears echo frequency

children call for siblings reborn

skulls fracture eyes the color purple

here the steeliest doctors weep

 

the sea waves shelled boys

sirens post explosions

 

all is shrapnel and hunger

none is safe all are waiting

between wall and wait and sea

and wall there is no day

what are we

flares rain metal escalation

 

descent upon heads ladders of spine collapse

night eats sleep the people hold fasts

 

children of lightening no rain

sewage into water skin flamed to ash

the women’s faces track lifelines

grief upon grief astronomical

dust was people last night

tunnel is the people now

 

raising horizon in coffins

there is no recovery

                                                                                        

she says they light the night with bombs

she says that’s not the sun at all

she says this is a crime against my heart

she says nothing

   touch me

she says listen

 

we are shelter and target

we are stars exploded

 

the people run into themselves for refuge

they catch up to their ghosts

between devastate and displace

what is destroyed again is everything

what is created is a hole

an other

lots of people have been asking me for directions today maybe i actually look like i have my shit together for once in my life

man i hate people who get annoyed at petty shit like if something bad happens to me im mad for like 2 seconds and then i just go eat or something

baluchx:

here it is folks.

the final episode.

Episode #10.

i met with the former governor of Kabul and he shared one of the hardest moments that hes experienced.

many people look at the Mujahideen in a negative manner, yet they don’t understand the struggles and sacrifices that were made for a free/liberated country from Soviet occupation. 

this story shows the love a commander has for his men and the people who served with him.

thank you for the support in the series. 

i’ll see what happens in the future.

New laser surgery technique can turn your brown eyes blue
Of all the features we notice about a person upon meeting them, their eyes are often the first connection we make. But some people just aren’t satisfied with the color of their peepers, wishing their dark corneas away in favor of a pleasant shade of blue. Those unhappy with brown eyes may find just what they’re looking for: Laguna Beach doctor Gregg Homer has developed a new procedure that can actually convert brown-colored eyes to blue in just a matter of weeks.
The operation itself is fairly straight forward: Using a laser tuned to a special frequency, thedoctor actually alters the cells that produce the brown coloration in the eye. After a few weeks, the darker color begins to fade, revealing the blue pigment underneath. As the doctor explains it, the procedure only works for brown-eyed individuals, as they already have a bluish coloration hiding underneath.
According to Homer, the procedure takes just 20 seconds to complete. And because of the large number of people wishing they were born with baby blues, he has already been contacted by thousands of potential clients. Homer and his company, Stroma Medical, have been working on the technology for over a decade, and say it will be available on a consumer basis within three years.
He estimates the procedures will cost about $5,000 each, and as the brown coloration doesn’t appear to regenerate, your eyes should stay blue for the rest of your days. Unfortunately, that almost means it’s completely irreversible, so if you end up regretting a hasty decision to switch, you’ll never be brown-eyed again.
Not surprisingly, the practice has come under scrutiny by some who believe the color of our eyes is somehow more sacred than other parts of the human body — like the bits that plastic surgeons alter every day. There’s also the risk that long-term damage may result from the procedure, and without longitudinal research, Homer can’t guarantee that problems won’t arise down the road. Still, with would-be patients lining up by the thousands, it’s clear that some people believe the risk is worth the reward.

I don’t get why people refer to it as “Palestine and Israel” because does Palestine really exist (as a political entity)? Even though a “state of Palestine” exists as a non-member state of the United Nations, a physical state of Palestine does not exist. There is no proper Palestinian government,…
