revisions….

“you should float between the borders” she says…

 

oh, but i do, I think…

i exist between the borders

have dwelt there, and here,

for a lifetime, or two, it seems…

 

between the borders that define sexuality,

between the borders that define culture,

between the borders that define identity,

between the borders of your skin and mine,

between this living in, and out, of my mind

 

boundaries defined, and blurred

 

celebration… and denial of self

knowing… and not

patience,,, and haste

 

between the boundaries that define

self and other

 

in the spaces

between our words,

where we make meaning….

 

in the places

between our bodies

where we pulled to connect….

 

in the energy

between our souls

where we yearn to know….

 

this is where i dwell……

  1. Sometimes when I read the words you share with us…
    I feel like any comment I make cannot express the awe I feel…
    You are one talented woman.

    This was very well said.
