English Majors After Graduation.


Serments d’Amour (Munich, ca. 1952). Rare Book Collection, A-49.

The smallest item in our collection at USF, this book measures 6 mm tall and has only 8 leaves of text. Each leaf has the phrase “I love you” in a different language. It came in a case that has a built-in magnifying glass, but it doesn’t help much.

But hurry, let’s entwine ourselves as one, our mouth broken, our soul bitten by love, so time discovers us safely destroyed.

Federico García Lorca (via tierradentro)

"Termites: An Assay," Jane Hirshfield


So far the house is still standing.
So far the hairline cracks wandering the plaster
still debate, in Socratic unhurt, what constitutes a good life.
An almost readable language.
Like the radio heard while travelling in. A foreign country—
you know that something important has happened, but not what.

I sat there singing her
Songs in the dark.

She said,
I do not understand
The words.

I said,
There are
No words.

Langston Hughes, “Songs” (via loveyourchaos)

Omar Holmon - “Dick Pics” (Rustbelt 2014)

Now, when it comes to the actual picture taking of ya dick, you can’t just do the overhead aerial shot. You gotta add variety. Show how the size stacks up against inanimate objects:
a remote, a Snapple bottle, a Bath and Body works 3-wick candle…”

A hilarious piece from Omar, who placed 2nd in the Individual Finals at this year’s Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam.


So happy that Blue Horses will be joining our Mary Oliver collection in October!
