According to Soraya Chemaly, ‘The number one cause of death for African American women ages 15-34 according to the American Bar Association: homicide at the hands of a partner.’ It’s bigger than Ray Rice; it’s bigger than the NFL and the Ravens. This is about patriarchy and masculinity; it’s about those who cite ‘mitigating circumstances,’ who blame the victim, who justify ‘boys will be boys,’ who systemically detract from the deadly issue of domestic violence. ‘But in a world in which one in four women (recent surveys reveal a number closer to 1 in 3) is the victim of intimate partner violence and black women are disproportionately targeted, this victim blaming is not just irresponsible; it is lethal,’ writes Hannah Giorgis. ‘Black women are punished when attempting to defend themselves: 94% of black female homicide victims are killed by people they know and 64% of those victims are wives, ex-wives or girlfriends of their killers.’

I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading. 

This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressiveworld devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.

They are the Cleaners. 

The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper. 

I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that. 

 

This is so beautiful, and so much like the Hunger Birds inside of my head.
