taped

the family photo arrived 

staring at me bound by wires

strangled by cassette tape 

in a wireless era


blank where the caption

shoulda read wish you 

were here

immersion

the trauma of being trans

in america led them on a search for immersive 

experiences like walking through wild fields of crickets 

composing worlds in solitude

anything to mitigate the hypervigilance

the feeling of walking through life

a witness scared to 

death

the prince is dead

the town declared the prince

is dead! nobody could recall 

one sweet day a child was born with a royal

stake. 99 years on the news

itself deceased the end 

of a life leased

after the British exit. a few hundred years

SARAH

mineral green her eyes

the color of the river

Nile. over middle earth 

to the sea she moved 

the world in sultry 

malachite

once upon a time in april

we got free phones free

shots in the arms waiting 

in lines. we got sun rays we got fools 

days without showers we

got flowers   #katyamills

off the coast of friendship

we could tell the future
by the birds gone quiet
a change in the winds
our energy jumped
full of dread we shouted out!
like we gonna perish

then the storm subsided
left our faces wet and salty
lush and flush 4 the sunshine

cathe.dral

solitary horn opens the cathedral

8am. stained glass dove etched

in the dome. weary-eyed bishop

golden marked robes. you can't have 

communion if you ain't a saint and 

who wants to be anyway

faith.less

known more 

4 the absence of faith

than faith

they followed a feeling

bought a taco

4 a hungry

kid

blanco y

grew up white ina world 

where nobody hurt you like 

you hurt yourself where if you

got any color and spirit you 

got beat down now how can it be 

any wonder in the world 

today white is unpopular 

distrusted despised?

fiches

laserfiching with blueprints 

they mapped out grand plans

thanking all gods

they was trans
