Nov 2020
betwixt and between
girl and boy and woman and person

suspended in a web of myself
queer rebel
unable to distinguish the lines
that separate me from Her and Them

dancing in an eclipse
a lapse in time
a sphere between night and day
They/ She is illuminated by pure
euphoric
moonlight
but still projected against deep
bottomless darkness

purple liquid
a porous entity that penetrates
trans-ends
and breaks
binary being

non binary
or, as I rather like to think of it
anti-binary
pro-expansion
complete and overflowing even
not a fraction of a person
an angel in human skin

rebirthing
a series of complex, spiraling
galaxies pouring from my lips
as I break the chains of She
dispose the gaze of He

finally confident enough
as star woman
ocean god
queer siren
to sit in the thrown of Me
a work in progress, still playing with these ancient concepts of gender and my lucid experience of self
