seldom seen

you think about love and how everything seems so fucked up sometimes but it’s not. it’s just you thinking that it is. but you cry all the same even though mere hours ago she was here, in your room, caressing your fingertips, placing her soft lips on yours and kissing, kissing until neither of you could breathe because the air between you compressed with passion. you longed to feel her skin against you, to stroke your fingertips down, between her...

to be queer in this world

FREE WRITING

to be queer in this world is to know that there is always a safe haven,
a place for dreamers and radicals,
a place for wanderers and those with their feet on the ground,
a place for flunkers and ex-flunkers,
for those who like flat beer, and those who despise it,

chrysanthemum i envy,
colours splattered, bursting,
guts flying,
hell bent admiration.

to be lost in these voices,
these noises, is trivial,
but trivial is milk chocolate
sickly sweet, deathly evil

v squared, x cubed
motion, momentum, centrifugal force,
science cannot find room
in chrysanthemums, in me

my body like water, spilling
over desks into fingers,
retreating, beating physics
i am not predictable.

graphite on paper,
slippery they tell me, made
from layers with bonds, i too
am lubricous, timid.
