vignettes

i.
maybe she cut her hair and it was the most free she ever felt
every step a bounce
every sidewalk crack
a story to tell



ii.

I wanna hear one fashion designer say
"hips
are
in
fashion!"

instead we get:
"more cushion
for the pushin!"
oh
isn't that
quaint?



iii.
ignorance is bliss
like
little girls in
sunday best
skipping down
the wheelchair ramp
at the
funeral home.


iv.
queer girls
running around
trying to make their situations
into ani difranco songs



vi.

she has the walk
of a drag queen
on top of her game
on top of the stage
and in the hearts
of all the
queens-in-training






vii.
can we be beautiful again?
