inna net
where sleek, carnal beings
set the bar for grace and balance,
i was born fat. of color. witha lispth. gay!

so many hater hooks
got cast upon my solo brook
by anchored others in
fear of fresh heir.

“skin is deep”
spouted parents who weren’t
as clerics pedaled vile
and deviant educators ruled.

“conform!” they bullied relentlessly.
notta 1 floated the option
to swim whole with ugly.
addiction. transgender. bipolar!

notta 1 taught self-acceptance.
how to partner flaws to the
creative sea of uniqueness
each one of us has the right

2 Be.
