In recent months I have gone from being able to wear underwire bras for a few hours to rarely being able to wear underwire bras at all. I have many lovely colorful underwire bras that have not seen much wear, and I am hoping some of you might be interested in buying some of them, as I am broke and still looking for a job.

Sized 42G/44F, exciting teals and magentas and also some standard beiges and blacks, all with underwire of course, some padded, some unlined/mesh.

I am requesting $17 for one bra, $12 each for any subsequent bras, no shipping charge in the US lower 48 (I can look into shipping costs elsewhere if desired). These were all around $50 when brand new, so this is a steal!

what is it to make peace?
with a fact, a circumstance

the war is only between the self
and the self, the battlefield the space
in which you lie awake at night

deafened by artillery, shelling, missile whine

and then the treaty:
self and self sign, unwitnessed, a promise
in the silence of the armistice—
acceptance, resignation

(but for the wounds,
scars on the landscape,
and all human decay)

a city takes years to rebuild after devastation
better and more consciously planned, yes
but with history erased or beyond repair

all war is loss
and peace what comes after, into the space
left by fire, that hot bright destruction,
the blackened and fragile remains
of what only effort and time can reclaim

peace is the salvage of the ruins
when the soldiers have gone home;
what you form from the ashes, from
damage

the bringing into existence
of something shaped from the dirt and clay and blood
under your fingernails, beautiful not in spite of
but because

not the opposite of loss, then
but what grows from it

note to self on the subject of baking

I very rarely if ever have the patience to make my own pie crusts, but I also usually dislike storebought ones (pilsbury, usually is what i can find) to the extent of why did I even bother to give this thing a crust?

but I have discovered that I actually like trader joe's house brand pre-made frozen pie crusts. The main flavor difference is that down in the bottom of of the ingredients, just before salt, is sugar. strangely, I suppose, I think a sweet pie should have an at least moderately sweet crust? texturally and/or digestively, when reading ingredients to figure out what the difference, it turns out pilsbury uses xanthan gum. so much for them.
