Discussion of Glitch by Toasha Jiordiano

Toasha describes the glitch world in a way that makes you see it, feel it, and smell it. Glitch takes you to an apocalyptic world where people are searching for ways to get a chip or get rid of one even if it causes pain, but somehow Synta finds hope. She has hope for her family but hope may not enough.

We always hear stories of people in apocalyptic worlds that are trying to leave the old ways behind, but the people in Glitch are trying to keep some of that technology. People astonishingly steal and recycle chips. But most think they have the chips for good reason even if they could glitch.

Don’t chase

Don’t chase just stand still

Everything that’s yours is already in the will

Some people will try to make you think

They have something for you

But it’s really sadness on the brink of disaster

I’m sorry that’s not what I’m after

I don’t chase because all things that were meant to be

Fall in your lap you’ll see

Discussion of Octavia Butler Mind of my Mind

Doro is all powerful and he cannot be defeated. He goes around killing and no one can stop him. They all do what he says and he won’t have it any other way. He picks who gets to live and die. He mates women with whoever he likes. Sometimes in our lives we want to attribute our failures to someone holding us back. Sometimes we are the ones holding us back and we can find a way to stop believing something is in our way.

Stronger

Is that what it’s really about?

I’m stronger than you without any doubt?

If you are having problems and I’m not

I’m staying away from you, you got caught

I’m not worried about nothing but you have to worry all the time

If you pass by me you might see

I’m stronger and because of that I’ll her here longer

Even if you think I’m alone

I’ve never been alone

I’m not wandering or on the roam

Mothers

Mothers with the strength of ten men

Mothers who would do it all again

You’ve been doing it with every breath

You’re not even finished yet

You do it with such grace

People are baffled all over the place

They don’t even realize your work begins with the sunrise

The sun is beginning to set

But you’re just getting wet

Taking on the second duties

Like making little booties

It’s amazing and awe inspiring

But you never get your title as king

You continue to work like nobody’s business

So much you’ve given us

We don’t even know

But the day is coming when Mothers sow

They get everything their due

And it all is in honor from you

If only we could all be this way

We’d all have a better world to live in

And we’d all have real strength always
