beyond appearance

Before I get to the poem I’m going to share, J.K. Rowling. She wrote some transphobic tweets and then went further in writing more of her views on her website. I in no way agree with her. When I read what she wrote I wanted to vomit. People will read that and agree with her because they are also misinformed. She didn’t even include the sources of her information. I’m raging. And I don’t even want to think about Harry Potter right now.

Urgh.


age, sexuality, gender –

is this all you want to talk about?


what is that, are they together – wonder what their family think


all that is in an age are numbers

for organisation,

we cannot all be born at once, you see


dare i ask

what of love –


what if they love one another?


perhaps what you see goes beyond appearance –

is not binary –

or what you believe –

based on perception


what if it is love –

do you think before you love?


what a shame


our heart has more sense than our prejudice.

hangers click, handless sleeves reach out
as i pull from the depths of my wardrobe
a shirt –
tangled, attached
a black belt –
