Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] technoshaman, there are 22 new verses in "To Know After Absence."  Shiv explores his new apartment over Blues Moon, and Boss White helps him figure out what he needs from the storage building.

This poem is spillover from the September 2013 Crowdfunding Creative Jam. It was inspired by the sculptures of Choi Xoo Ang. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] kengr. This poem belongs to the series Diminished Expectations. For the two or three people actually into that series, three of its poems have been sponsored, so hang onto your hats!

WARNING: This poem (and the series in general) contains material that many readers may find disturbing. Highlight to read the warnings, which basically consist of a solid wall of triggers. The setting is a dystopia which is horrible for everyone, with rampant racism, ableism, and other oppression. It features graphic sexual exploitation, objectification of disabled people, pictures of explicit sculptures (although they're amazing as art), and other mayhem. Please consider your tastes and headspace before deciding whether this is something you want to read.

Today is sunny and warm.

Round 1, I finished trimming grass around the hedge plants at the edge of the savanna.

EDIT 6/2/17: I cut grass around two seedlings in the savanna, the second line of wind defense.

We went to see Wonder Woman today.  It was totally awesome.  Definitely one of the best superhera movies ever.  \o/  Lots of athletic women running around kicking butt.  Also check out the fantastic merchandise.  If you look closely at the dolls, you see they match the actress surprisingly well: reasonable breasts, a little hip, a fairly thick muscular waist, and nice powerful legs.  :D  Also the Amazons mostly weren't willowy.  They were trim and muscular, or beefy.  I lost count of how many times someone said "You can't ..." to Diana, and in the next frame they were looking around for her while she ran off doing it anyhow.  And that's feminism for you.

I have to look pretty hard to find flaws.  I did noticed that Diana's mother was an idiot.  (You made a baby Amazon, not a dahlia.  How could you possibly think she'd be a pacifist?)  It was just generally brilliant.

If you like watching women kick ass, go see this movie.
