I promise you, you're allowed to throw books away. No, neither the library not the local charity shop want your medical textbooks from the 60s or your falling-apart 80s fantasy paperbooks. If someone can get your book for 1c on Amazon, nobody fucking wants it.

Ishtar Awakens in Chicago

My arrogance knows no bounds
And I will make no peace today
And you shall be so lucky
To find a woman like me

Today neither will the East claim me
nor the West admit me
Today my belly is a well
wherein serpents are coiled
ready to poison the world,
and you should be so lucky.

All I have is my arrogance
I will teach it to lean back
and smoke a cigarette in your faces,
and you should be so lucky

No I will make no peace
even though my hands are empty
I will talk as big as I please
I will be all or nothing
And I will jump before the heavy trucks
And I will saw off my leg at the thigh
before I bend one womanly knee

I am poison
And you will drink me
And you should be so lucky.
- Mohja Kahf
