Queer (On Reclaiming)

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

I always liked the word queer.
Like a mushroom or a flower;
paraphernalia, unexplained and unexplainable.
Like a stone held in my hand,
it fit.

And maybe that was because my tongue always tripped over the syllables of ‘lesbian’
because my skin didn’t fit over my shape as well as it should have
my gender didn’t fit into my mouth,

Pomegranate

PROMPT: Acrostic Verse

Persephone lives with her feet buried in the rich dirt and leaves
only when her
mother begs her, as if she too were a prisoner, longing and lonely, cold
enough to make a winter bitter
gold enough to save the summer for those who needed it
rain only comes when persephone is home, or alone in her mother’s basket seasons

and longing to be
two feet in the

    They sold it at Walmart, at midnight, when the store was supposed to be closed but the surgical white light spilled through the windows and the sliding double doors.
    The rest of the world was asleep, just for a moment. When the minute mark crept to zero again and the hour blinked into twelve.
    The light spilling from the store and pharmaceutical (according to sign out in front) flickered, then returned, brighter, it seemed.

In January

PROMPT: “In January”

“Burn up with the water
The floods are on the plains
The planets in a rose
Who knows what they contain?
And my brain is like an orchestra
Playing on, insane
Will you love me like you loved me in the January rain?”
            --Mary, Big Thief

All I know is we met in a parking lot in the dead of winter.
All I know is that revolutions happen in February for a reason,
because all of January...
