❝ A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity. ❞

i am all too well-versed
in the subdued laughter of funeral homes.
these five years have taught me
about smiles outshined by eyes
overbright with tears and half-hearted
jokes that catch in your chest
stupid jokes that you laugh at too hard
because you cannot bear to go on crying.

i thought i knew about mourning joy,
quiet and somber and thin and false but
i had never seen yellow at a funeral.
i had never seen someone buried in their wedding dress,
still glowing with newlywed pride.

i know how to force laughter
when my heart is breaking over a heart
stopped long before its time but
today i learned that joy can ring full and true
amid eulogies and daffodils and salt-rimmed eyes.

they tell us that love is patient
and kind and modest, love bears
and hopes and believes all things but
you’ve got to learn for yourself that love
is a joy that can’t be diluted by even the largest
oceans of grief. that there is so much joy
in a life well-lived. that sometimes yellow
is the best color for a funeral.
