For the Femme and Defiant

This one is for the ones formerly known as fairies.

For the ones known as fags,

For the one whose existence is minimized to a crime,

For the ones called demons,

For the ones who are  just like me.

 

This one is for the outcasts.

The ones whose existence is queer and untamable

The ambiguous ones whose existence defies small boxes

The ones whose mystery they seek to uncover

 

This is for the ones who overcome suicide,

The ones who still consider death,

The ones who are buried in shame,

The ones whose names we don’t know,

The ones we ridicule.

 

This is for the ones who existence is misunderstood

The ones who live in no one’s will but theirs

The booty-short wearing boys,

The hips swaying kings

The ones who are seen and not heard

The ones whose voices never mattered.
