THIS IS NOT A POEM ABOUT SOMEONE’S HISTORICAL PREFERENCES 3.16.17

Spoken from one young woman to another, around 5:00 in the afternoon, in front of Powell Library, at UCLA.

3.16.17

 

I fucking love history, like the really old shit.

Like Europeans and stuff?

What’s that?

Like Greeks–

I love Greeks–

and Romans and like the French Revolution and stuff.

Yeah, but like, Aborigines and Egyptians and like the Mayans. I love that shit, love it.

 

I wish I would have asked her what specifically she loved about Aborigines. We’ll never know.
