queer feels & junk

queers, a love letter

sometimes your process can meet someone else’s process and you can process together and your combined process creates progress

but other times a process is just your process and you do not need to process your process with anyone because their process is their process and when we process in excess we sometimes forget how to

just

exist

the other night under the full moon
a rat ran out in front of us and
across your feet

i wondered briefly if it was the same
rat we saw last summer when we kissed
in that same spot
under the full moon
when we’d spent all night talking
about how kissing
was a bad idea
and really i’d just been watching
your mouth the entire time

the average life span of a New York City rat
is less than one year

  • Anxiety:
  • Anxiety: No you dont
  • Me: But
  • Anxiety: No

Oh sweetheart,
hasn’t anyone told you
that you must be yourself to survive?
You are a phoenix,
regenerative,
a strong presence in the air around you,
and beautiful in the same way that brushfires are beautiful.
You come off like a shot of espresso;
you cannot stop waking people up.
Life is an endless morning to you.
You are strong.
Do not be afraid to be strong.
And when you are soft,
do not be afraid to be soft.
You do not see lace hardening its edges,
or oak trees rejecting their topmost branches.
There are days when people will say this is not enough,
that you should not like yourself so much.
They will say that you must soften, sweeten, soothe,
to play games no one wants to play,
all to ensnare people who will call themselves your friends or lovers.
You must know that they are wrong.
You must know you are more than a plaything.
You must know you are worth authenticity.
When your joints creak beneath the weight of expectation and provocation,
you must know that you are a force of light
and love,
and wind,
and fury,
and hope.
Your soul is the prize of a lifetime.

  • Cis person: "they" is plural
  • Me: *slaps them round the head until they're seeing double* is that better?

to all the carnists who say going vegan is “too expensive:” i just got back from scavenging the dumpsters behind whole foods and found
one ripped dishwashing glove (repaired with duct tape)
two used duracell batteries
the key to a volvo
a losing lottery ticket from last night’s mega millions drawing


Bon appetit.
