Take it in

Breaking, shaking
I’m alone
when the world starts
to unfold
this is heartache evermore
broken, shattered
on the floor
we once witnessed this before
mind at once and then it’s gone
feel the world from getting on
broken mirrors
mind forgot
she keeps breathing
on and on.

Under the tent

Everyone gather!
Everyone come near!
Prepare yourself greatly
for the circus is here!
They have elephants,
and lions and clowns-
get your tickets
for they will sell out!
Rides and attractions
for your selfish actions
candy and treats
and horrors that speak
the circus has everything
you’ll ever need.
Get lost in the rivers of
fun, blood and gore
forget the nights leanings
whatever they afford
ignore the screaming
you’re still in for something more
enter here the ringleader
now the madness has the floor.
Everyone come gather!
Everyone do cheer!
The circus has come to town
everyone get your tickets
the price a steal for now!

Trans is beautiful

If you’re gonna do it-
do it right.
Turn that symptom into life-
don’t grieve that diagnosis-
just put that dress on tonight-
cause if you’re gonna do this shit-
do it right.
Don’t forget it’s a delusion but
embrace the brains solution
and turn that defect into movement!
Paint that face, move with grace,
perfect that bitchy kinda pout-
the most beautiful trans women
know this without a doubt:
that they are men but live in costume
knowing who they are
with or without you
and
that claiming you’re a real woman
simply makes you unstable.
The most beautiful trans women
do mental illness just right
looking like a dream
you’ve had most of your life.
