My girlfriend has a girlfriend
as pigeons flee the roost
Pronouns crying God knows what
knots are coming loose

I was my girlfriend’s boyfriend
when lines unblurred defined
My love abeyant, Limbo’s child
—left here misaligned  

(Villanova University: June, 2022)

I don’t identify as anything but ME
If you need a definition use a dictionary
But for some people, life is about
more than gender, ***, and sexuality

we called home
me n all the neighbors
who still do **** it
made my daddy
and his daddy
obligatory consumers
from employees with degrees
in chemical engineering

now i live in the barrio
and all the pretty yellow lights
on the way to granma’s
went blue
through brown hue
bright light took my sight
taste of ****
placed on my tongue
i’m not done

from this moment
I will own Myself
a costume will not tell me
what my Gift is
or how to give it.
my progeny will have names
not numbers
with my presents
i can See the future

tickle my roots
so i giggle and
jiggle my lymph.
dandelions thrive in crust
but i'm a prairie nymph.
my feet need
fluffy stuff like peat.
my leafs need
complete fairy rings
to hum the drumbeat
as the prairie sings.

how fortunate to meet
mycelium, come eat
where i sleep:
in Creatures' compost
replete with giggling
wigglers underneath
the brown and sticky
sticks betwixt
the Sun-fed sedges
on the edges
of the Forest.
(biology) A symbiotic relationship between the mycelium of a fungus and the roots of a plant.

of mowed
diamonds at the
neighborhood parks are
Vast            and           widE
my seeds need space
to become corn
on the cob
of course i wouldn't till up the actual baseball field, but there is so much field around the field outside the gate that we could use for growing food. contact me if you are in the Houston area and want to help.

blessed sting
i’m numb
with jubilation
a nettle found me
