Never forget the foundation of Law and Order.People really don’t know that America’s first police force was made to keep watch for runaway slaves and keep free ones in check. This has carried over into today and will never stop, unfortunately.
KRS One tried to tell us
The first police “organizations” were Rattle Watches. The first police officers were Runaway Slave Patrolman, which started in 1705.
Historical context is significant
Using makeup to process. Using makeup to gain control over myself. Weaponize your looks when you need to. Make them soft and gentle when you need to. Your body is yours to present however you want.

Therapist told me
To write down things
Grateful for so I’m grateful for all plants I think they’re great I’m thankful for weed and klonopin and grateful for the time
When animals jump on your lap and curl up there
I’m grateful for makeup and scalding hot baths and people who make YouTube videos about makeup and their lives I’m grateful for the ability to make my makeup so scary that no one at work will approach me and ask about my psych hospitalization I’m grateful for not being in the hospital anymore I’m very grateful for
Peter Pan collars and plaid school uniform
That my mom is
Help and Russell and Elliot and Pona and Avo and their endless
Generosity and kindness and patience and caring and loving
This is my blood and these are my turbo jets
