Master of This one verse.
Who can create anything
my eyes being remade…
There’s a mountain out of a mole hill here. (I’m at a construction site.)
just make the world big enough for you.
We are able to join you. Come, I am listening in perfection.
I joked that a good name of a drag queen would be Mechitzah.
Master of Return,
Master of making marks, and raising them, of rearranging.
of cats cleaving.
of cats leaping from dumpsters.
I break all bonds, politely, in the way you have been asked to be in this world
and how silly you are in my heart.
you are her name. Straying path after path.
lifting like a shovel any judgment i ever used to separate me.
I am a cloud, a clown.
