“What Do Women Want?”
(Kim Addonizio, 2000)

I want a red dress.
I want it flimsy and cheap,
I want it too tight, I want to wear it
until someone tears it off me.
I want it sleeveless and backless,
this dress, so no one has to guess
what’s underneath. I want to walk down
the street past Thrifty’s and the hardware store
with all those keys glittering in the window,
past Mr. and Mrs. Wong selling day-old
donuts in their café, past the Guerra brothers
slinging pigs from the truck and onto the dolly,
hoisting the slick snouts over their shoulders.
I want to walk like I’m the only
woman on earth and I can have my pick.
I want that red dress bad.
I want it to confirm
your worst fears about me,
to show you how little I care about you
or anything except what
I want. When I find it, I’ll pull that garment
from its hanger like I’m choosing a body
to carry me into this world, through
the birth-cries and the love-cries too,
and I’ll wear it like bones, like skin,
it’ll be the goddamned
dress they bury me in.

I layered a couple of windlights in PS, and it did funky things to my necklace. Oh well... better luck next time!

Lovely pic, and I don't see anything wrong with the necklace!

I haven't tried layering Windlights. In fact, I have no idea how to do it . . . any idea where I can find some guidance?

You have a talent, Tali! And you've captured the spirit of it exactly.

(I love Addonizio's poetry. She's got attitude. Check her out!)

Thank you Carolina!

I haven't killed it yet, but I'd like to think that it's thrashing about a bit and looking a little worried! 😊

Question. I like to make Blogger-blogs(?). Is it allowed to put my favorite photo's from here, even post a link to the post, think that would be allowed? 

You'll find many of the images here come from Flickr, where the copyright in use is listed. Many are Creative Commons Attribution ©...

Posting an image here gives Linden Lab certain rights to the image. However, the Lab Does not extend those rights to anyone as far as I know. So, technically if the image is not posted somewhere that describes the © you have to ask the individual that made the image because nothing here gives you a clue where it is All Rights Reserved or not. 

HOWEVER... I suspect most won't mind.
