While National Poetry Month has ended, there is no reason to stop enjoying poetry the other eleven months of the year. In my last post, I mentioned Langston Hughes was one of my favorite poets. One of his most striking, and shortest, poems is On Justice where he turns the metaphor of blind Justice and subverts it – to a different kind of blindness.
That Justice is a blind goddess
Is a thing to which we black are wise:
Her bandage hides two festering sores
That once perhaps were eyes.
This month the SL Bar Association and Justitia Virtual Legal Resource will again celebrate the law and highlight current issues and controversies in the law. A special focus will be on Voting Rights – and a pernicious effort to reduce some people’s access to the ballot. You should go and learn about the current challenges to our liberties and to our right to vote. Hughes’ poem is particularly apt now that the Supreme Court has invalidated Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act in an act of willful blindness to reality of racism in America.
And you can look good while doing that in this delicious jumpsuit from Baiastice for faMESHed. It comes with a HUD to change the belt to all sorts of colors – and while styling for today, that belt ran through most of them. I added sexy and saucy rumba sandals from ieQED that I picked up on the 21st at the 21 Shoe event. Mark the 21st on your calendars because the shoe event is a blink and you miss it event. With shoes like these, you do not want to miss it.
This necklace and earrings from Pure Poison had the bright vibrant colors I wanted.
