Texting Poetry – 4: Why?

Queering the game of life Via Queer and Present Danger


Because even you are Human,

Because you are my Sister,

Because you are my Brother,

Because, only if u allowed Yourself, we could be pals,

Because, in a past life, you

Were my mother,

Because, looking through Eons of the ether, you Were my father,

Because you’ve been all Creatures to arrive here,

Because we all Interconnected…


I’ll reach out to you all the

Same, you and I.


Because all creatures are bright and beautiful no matter their surface seas.
