Sister Outsider

Somewhere in the crevices of your blood hides/another fist another/cornea another/encyclopedia of exit signs/neon guiding you out/I learned how to speak from you/I am learning how to breathe out of/ away from silence


Inspired by Audre Lorde’s “Sister Outsider”

The Testosterone Files

If you hunt inside a body/ rummaging past the inflamed mosquito bites/ misspelled doctor’s notes/ collection of scabs and lists of words to look up/ you will find a peep hole toward a reflection/ of a part of you never reached/ sometimes books save lives/ this book/ saved mine


Inspired by Max Wolf Valerio’s “The Testosterone Files”
