taken from one of my grad school seonbae’s kakao story, short poems by ha sang-wook. too funny:
ㅡ하상욱 시집 ‘야식집’ㅡ
ㅡ하상욱 시집 ‘리모콘’ㅡ
ㅡ하상욱 시집 ‘적립포인트’ㅡ
ㅡ하상욱 시집 ‘불금’ㅡ
ㅡ하상욱 시집 ‘메뉴선택’ㅡ
"No homo" cries the team at the dig site. The head archaeologist sinks to his knees, sobbing. He has dedicated his entire career to the pursuit of homo habilis, an important part of the hominid evolutionary line. All his work led up to this archaeological dig site. But now, his whole life has been for nothing. There is no homo….there is only Australopithecus.
I read this to a group of archaeologists and they completely lost their shit

- Friend: who's that?
- Me: Ellen Page? She was in Juno and Inception. She recently came out.
- Friend: Oh. That's why she's dressed like that.
- Me: um
- Me: no
- Me: no
- Me: no
- Friend: but
- Me: no.
Think about the first name you were ever called,
and then think how long it took until
you got called a pussy
or a slut,
or a bitch,
or a whore,
all of which are words that fall too close to ‘girl.’
Think about the first time you got called a ‘girl’
and they said it with a sneer.
Like it was a bad thing.
For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises eat their partners after intercourse.
Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
They come back with bloody muzzles, dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around with his mane puffing out.
Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
We’re the ones who do the necessary work, dirty our hands,
fuck or fight or both.
We’re often the smaller sex, which makes us a harder target
as we slink close and sink our teeth in.
Remember: we’re deadly.
You should be proud to be called a girl."
