MTPC Trans Youth Summit 2011

MTPC_Trans_Youth_Summit
I had the most amazing time in Boston this past weekend performing for and workshopping with the youth at the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition's Trans Youth and Parent Summit. The new performance poetry and speaking worshop was really energizing and I was so proud of and amazed by the number of participants who brought and worshopped their original works!

6.9.11 930am


Bottom lip to unswept pavement, she stared at me

unfortunate monster.

Stranger to Stranger,

this is our exchange.


I am not a public installation,

my hands are in errand,

my eyes still sleepy.

Pre-noon a blur, uninterrupted and slow.


Disgust on her tongue I did ignore, but

here I am,

weaker than I thought,

replaying, revisiting, rewriting-


S̶o̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶'̶v̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶m̶a̶n̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶b̶o̶o̶b̶s̶?̶ ̶

S̶o̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶’̶v̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶t̶r̶a̶n̶s̶m̶a̶n̶?̶ ̶

S̶o̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶’̶v̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶ ̶t̶r̶a̶n̶s̶ ̶p̶e̶r̶s̶o̶n̶?̶ ̶

S̶o̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶’̶v̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶this ̶b̶o̶d̶y̶?̶


Most days I settle for,


What the fuck are you looking at?

You got a problem?

What?

Say it again!


The tender comfort of deep night,

replaced by a slow peel of daylight,

from head to soul,

I cover.


My torn skin aches to scorch under the shared sun,

I am lost, but I walk

down this piss soaked stoop's-

flaming red carpet.

This month Canadian artist and good friend Sharon Mok came to town to work on a new album with me. We worked tirelessly glitter pencils in hand and then took a couple of breaks :)
