In the old days
At barn raisings
After they worked together
They danced together.
So lay the floor, Americans,
Put up the beams,
Ceil the roof,
Then ready with the fiddles
Now choose your partners,
This is our time, our own, our only
Together we make

This was written in 1934 so it does a sort of Mary Wollstonecraft fanfiction thing you might expect re: certain fetishizations of motherhood and essentializations of female bodies. It also decries “mannish” women poets in really stupid ways.
But she quotes Marx. It hints at the idea of a social motherhood that is probably valuable.
idk, worth a read, I think.

my favorite moment in last night’s TVD was when Katherine was straight dragged to hell for which there was no conceptual or theological precedent in the show and which was entirely to make clear that Katherine Was Bad, Having Done These Things To Elena, Who Is Good
are you russian or russophone BTW or just general european? i so rarely see americans who know about the moomins!!
No, I’m not russophone! I am an anglophone American. I didn’t know about the moomins before Tumblr but francesetherealgumm posted some illustrations and then I developed a crush on Tove Jansson and simultaneously watched most of the 1980’s television series over a few sleepy Saturdays. Because I am twenty-two years old and I can? Hahaha.
wait is your username a reference both to the moomins and mayakovsky bc i think i am in tumblr love
lol yes it is :3
