I am an artist; I paint with discourse.

Taboo is my favorite subject.

I am a member of a multiple system. I am not Tyler Durton, Dr. Jekle, or Mr. Hyde.

I am a genderqueer. I disrupt gender status. This is a testament to nature, to biology, to neurology: the ability to be expressively varied and to stop gender violence.

If we must order, let us revise and revise and revise until the violence is much less.

“If a space is not safe for one group, it is not safe for any group; because, at such a time, we all become members of a suspect population.”

Some expectations are birthed from that which has been regularly encountered. The self is not regular, not seamless. So, when I am able, I will stand naked with the self. Encounter it regularly. Create another safe space.

I have become a different kind of writer than I had imagined I would when I was 11, though, not entirely.

Please note, I enjoy sincere feedback, including the ever helpful critique.

culture as paradigm/worldview

There seems to be a lot of debate about how to define “culture”. A similarity among these debates is differentiation between groups of people. I’ll someday do a literature on definitions of culture. For now, I am thinking along paradigms of worldviews joining customs and ideologies into systems of norms. I like this idea of paradigms, it allows for subcultures and counter-cultur…

Just me and Missy

Tonight I went out searching / on that hill above the ocean / just behind my eyes / shutting them to feel the breeze / the sun warmed afternoon / in the salty air / I gather on the rocks / until tonight calls me back / to the papers on my desk / to the dim lamp light / the song ends / leaving this loud, loud silence
