“On Writing Inspired”

I feel it coming now
the words I’ve found
are pouring out –

a worn-out time-pressure faucet
rinses my hands to a sputter
asking only that I tap it again
for fresh water

– repeating the process till
all the suds are gone from my skin
and the pages read clean
as the day is long –

like how I imagined when
I first dreamed ~


Women see each other

Once we realize we’ve been taught to judge ourselves against one other


We just stop

Women watch and wait for the signals we send

With our eyes and stances,

Phrasing and pitch and pointed glances

Women intercede

When we glean that things

Are out of step, we step in, up, and forward –

Wardens of our personage

Aren’t you beautiful, love

Who checks to see if I am good before walking on –

Call this something like a song

For womanhood


Know Better

Think you know better

Than me

Who honors my body daily?

Who wears this skin

Who knows what my smile means?

Think you know better

Than me

Who can name every scar

Who wakes and sleeps in this

What is mine, by right of birth

Think you can say what’s best

For my being

Sure you know better

Than me, who carries on

Even after a storm

Even feather-worn

Think you know better, really?

Well think again.


I Surmise

It’s tough at any age

It seems

Like fokes just stopped speaking


Facts’of changed

Know what I mean – 

     Like how Pluto’s the ninth planet – Except for it’s not actually

Because factually there’s only eight planets in our Solar System (again)

How we learn(ed) and relearn(ed)


     So offtrack

To get back 

The dwarfing


In, between

Auspicious, these


Turn out surprisingly 

Hard to pin down



When it comes time to


And follow-through

After all, y’all do –

     When it counts

Ain’t that the truth?



Since I learned practically nothing new from viewing The Secrets of Dumbledore, the Wizarding World’s third installment of the Fantastic Beasts film series, here’s what I hypothesize:

Trails of evidence –

  • The Elder Wand (theory): “The wizard who controls the Elder Wand controls Fate.”
    • Between 1932 (Secrets of Dumbledore) and 1938, Albus’ phoenix (Fawkes) gives two tailfeathers to Ollivander the wandmaker. 
    • In 1938, Albus Dumbledore meets Tom Riddle at an orphanage and tells him he’s a wizard, then invites him to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
      • Tom Riddle is chosen by a wand in Ollivander’s shop with a phoenix-feather core (Fawkes).
      • From 1938 to 1945, Riddle attends Hogwarts; Grindelwald collects him at some point and tells him lies about Dumbledore; Riddle turns spy inside of Hogwarts, learning Dark Arts, Legilimency, Unforgivable Curses, and great secrets hidden inside Hogwarts Castle from Grindelwald. 
    • Dumbledore defeats Grindelwald in 1945 and wins the Elder Wand; he wields the Hallow from that point through the time of his death in 1997 (>50 years).
      • Albus is cursed when he takes ownership of the Elder Wand from Grindelwald.
      • Tom Riddle emerges as ‘Lord Voldemort’ amongst his growing followers, many of whom fall into his circle in grief over Grindelwald’s defeat and seeking someone to lead – Voldemort is Grindelwald’s natural successor.
        • *Voldemort never knew about the Deathly Hallows; he wanted the Elder Wand because he knew the ‘Death Stick’ belonged to his former master, and he couldn’t stand Dumbledore claiming it as his own.
    • For the second time, Albus finds himself unable to strike against a powerful foe; because Voldemort’s wand contains Fawkes’ tailfeather, Albus is unable to move against him.
      • From 1945 to 1981, Voldemort builds his army of Death Eaters, makes eight horcruxes: the diary, the ring, the locket, the cup, the lost diademNagini, and quite unintentionally and unrealized, HarryPotter. H
      • Dumbledore continues his quest for the Deathly Hallows in absolute secrecy; he discovers the Invisibility Cloak between 1971 and 1978, while James Potter was attending Hogwarts; he comes to possess the Cloak in 1981 after James and Lily Potter were killed.
      • In 1991, Harry Potter learns he is a wizard and visits Ollivander’s wand shop, where he is chosen by the wand containing Fawkes’ second tailfeather.
        • The wand recognizes Tom Riddle’s soul inside of Harry and chooses him again, tying Harry’s destiny to Dumbledore’s directly.
        • Albus returns the Invisibility Cloak to Harry in 1991, deeming him pure and brave enough to become Master of Death one day.
      • Albus’ search for the third Deathly Hallow (the Resurrection Stone) continues until he uncovers it in the summer of 1996 at the Gaunt house; Dumbledore destroys the horcrux inside the Stone but is left cursed, yet he succeeds in returning the Stone to its former, unpossessed state; Albus then hides the Stone inside the first Golden Snitch Harry ever caught for safekeeping.
    • Albus is disarmed by Draco Malfoy and killed by Severus Snape on the Hogwarts Astronomy Tower in 1997.
      • Voldemort steals the Elder Wand from Dumbledore’s grave but is never its true master.
    • In 1998 (>50 years after Dumbledore defeated Grindelwald), Harry Potter becomes Master of Death receives Albus Dumbledore’s Legacy.


Fear for Queer

Fear for Queer

Quit finding lines and crests
Betwixt others’ thighs and chests –
Search for the person right off –
Request and recite all given names, honorifics,
I-pronouns, and epithets –
She’s Jane
He’s John
They’re Jack Doe –
Bother to be certain whom and speak to –
Permit eyes to hold gazes –
Realize hunting for sex grazes
And lingers shameless
Leaving traces of baseless assignments and conscripts –
It’s defining defiance of the purpose
For objective terms and phrases –
How might fixed body types and expectations change
The shape of human-being,
Or make shallows of new-thinking?
