[Music Mondays] Civil War Edition

Captain America: Civil War, that is. We finally got around to seeing it last week and I've been running around with other people's characters traipsing through my head ever since. (I do write fanfiction in addition to my original stuff, so this is nothing new.)

But since they've been traipsing through my head, it's causing me to start coming up with playlists for the various characters. I'm kind of stuck on Bucky Barnes right now (particularly his evolution from The Winter Soldier back to something like his old self) and there have been a few songs that have graced my ears over the last few days that make me go "Hmm. I should make another Fanmix."

So, here are a few of what I've been listening to.

Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

Virgin - Manchester United  

Wake Me up - Avicii

[Poetry] Revolution

Technically, this isn't magnetic poetry, it's cut-up poetry.

I came to this piece by way of cutting text out of a magazine and piecing it together (and then adding some of my own conjunctions and whatnot). But magnetic poetry is the same process. So I'll file this under Magnetic Poetry Monday and call it happy.

Remember when this was all we needed?
Sweet rolls, vodka and
the sun coming to an end.

Now, where do I begin?
Waking up on the other side of that revolution
where pain came too close to joy
and a woman could be damned by sunbeams
if she forgot that "good enough" is more than skin deep.

(It's all in the hips and the exhale of breaths
when you've forgotten how to be happy.)

And the peak experience is discovering
the hidden brilliance
in satisfying yourself.
