Stay with us. Don’t sink to the bottom

like a fish going to sleep.

Be with the ocean moving steadily all night,

not scattered like a rainstorm.


The spring we’re looking for

is somewhere in this murkiness.

See the night-lights up there traveling together,

the candle in its gold dish.


Don’t slide into the cracks of ground like spilled mercury.

When the full moon comes out, look around.











One response to “Genderqueer-Part III”

  1. I love Kate (and her partner, Barbara Carrellas), when I lived in NYC I pet sat for them several times. They are wonderful, caring people with so much love and wisdom to share! I actually haven’t read My New Gender Workbook yet but I can’t wait. When you get the chance I highly recommend Kate’s original memoir, Gender Outlaw.
