I have translated the poem "en laisse" ("on a leash") by Dominique Fourcade. Originally published in 2005, this poem is a reaction to political events of the time which we would do well to keep thinking about.

CWs: extended discussion of torture, sex references, self-harm references

@chillallmen @bryn @garfield You cannot truly imagine what it's like to have a parent use "twink" in front of you first, or the conversation about twinks that follows, and yet, this horrifying event on occasion has been known to happen. Ask me how I know.

@bryn @garfield garf just needs to say the word twink sometimes, why do fish swim, why do birds fly, who knows

day 10: it is getting increasingly difficult not to use the word "twink" in the presence of my parents

not intending to shame anyone but do think once or twice before posting "sometimes states are good" with barely concealed glee when your country is in the process of transforming its prisons into death camps

@garfield this sounds a lot like when I got really into noise music and every single other genre sounded like a subset of that

me and my literary critic friends shooting the shit like "ive been reading a lot of toilet graffiti lately" and "if it was written by a breathing human being it doesn't even look like words to my eyes"

this isn't even a joke nowadays if I start reading a piece of writing and I can tell what it's about I instantly black out

oh you spent years training to write a musical line or an engaging character? I am going to kill you

as a discerning literary critic i have made it my mission relentlessly to shit on anything that looks even remotely like "competent" writing
