Doctor Who fans,
It is not controlling to expect to not be lied to within a committed relationship of several months.
Clara told Danny a lie that she is maintaining. She is lying, not because Danny “doesn’t want her to travel,” but because she is embarrassed of her inability to stop.
By Carolyn Hembree
The dead girl decks herself in redbud, red algae, red-shouldered hawk for me
She swims through reeds to my sick room
She burns sassafras in the mountain cave
She steeps black elder tea
She reads is smoke is smoke is smoke
She hangs gourds in a chinaberry
She hangs chinaberry and owl in eventide
She charms me with water mocassins
She charms them from water from skins from cans of lard
She puts her fingers and tongue through a treillage of green heron horse nettle
She molds double vowels to her gums – sweet gum woolly adelgid
She speaks through fever dreams in tongues without skulls
She is like the blood thrown from my window
She greens my sunken chassis in splendor
o earthen vessel o living water o algaeic angel
of course people don’t like danny pink.
a poc character who’s becoming three dimensional who actually calls the doctor on some of his bullshit and treats clara respectfully and lovingly and doesn’t care in the end if she time travels so long as she confides in him if the doctor pushes her too far…
