my country, i will build you again,

if need be, with bricks made from my life.

i will build columns to support your roof,

if need be, with my bones.

i will inhale again the perfume of flowers

favored by your youth.

i will wash again the blood off your body

with torrents of my tears.

once more, the darkness will leave this house.

i will paint my poems blue with the color of our sky.

simin behbahani, “the lioness of iran” and one of iran’s most esteemed poets, passed away today, august 19th. 

tonight, as i read her work, i find myself inspired not just as a lover of words, or even as an iranian — but also as an american, born and raised in this country. i mean to devalue neither ms. bebahani, nor those protesting down in ferguson right now, but i’ll admit, this poem, “my country, i will build you again," feels especially relevant at this moment.

"there still burns a fire in my breast 
to keep undiminished the warmth of kinship
i feel for my people”

it’s hard, sometimes, to feel a love for one’s country when its people are suffering. but here, i find hope in our lioness’s passion and revolutionary spirit. for her people, and for mine.

True Facts About Old Tony

ourladyoftheironmasque:

Belief: Old Tony was a playboy who slept around like mad.
Fact: To hide his heart condition, Old Tony kept his distance from other people, physically.  He dated a string of women only when particularly depressed.  He was usually in a relationship, and hoped to get married and or angst like mad over never being able to marry because heart shit. 

Belief: Old Tony was a hard drinker.
Fact: Layton and Michilinie really didn’t understand alcoholism (they thought once their story was over, it would never need to be mentioned again and Tony could resume drinking socially.)  While Tony did drink on panel prior to them laying the seeds for that story, it was really rare.  His dependence sort of popped up out of no where.

Belief: Old Tony was irresponsible and Pepper was the driving force behind the business.
Fact: Old Tony was actually extremely passionate about his work and most Iron Man stories focused on the goings on of the office for the first 20 years or so.  It was a noticeably long time before we so much as saw Tony’s house.

Belief: Old Tony’s scientific ethics were so lacking he’d do human experimentation..?
Fact: Old Tony was an engineer who was not at all versed in any other branch of science.  He was in no way the all-around genius we think of him as today.  He was a really good engineer and a really good business man and that was basically it.

Belief: Tony traveled back in time to ancient Egypt and Cleopatra had a thing for him.
Fact: okay this one is true.

Belief: Old Tony was super hard core about controlling his assets and IP
Fact: He was actually pretty fast and loose with who could drive an Iron Man suit before Armor Wars.

Belief: Old Tony had a comical love for roller skates.
Fact: This one is also true.
