"I want to explode, consume,
I want to devour you
lap up the salt on your skin,
revel in the stardust in your eyes.
I want to worship at your feet,
construct hymns to your hipbones.
your hands on my face,
murmuring of sins and dreams,
of grace and blood.
I die tiny deaths at your fingertips,
learning black and white,
reverence and debasement.
in your arms I am
arsonist, sculptor, gardener
surfer of the stars, collector of night.
in my arms you are
artist, calligrapher, master and commander
captain of this vessel, my priest and king."


The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.

This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.
