steps

Photography / Poetry (2016- )
Work-in-progress

steps is an intimate journey through queer and trans* identity. Gradually ebbing gently outward from the seclusion and safety of home, this collection is a journal of ten, thirty, a thousand paces and more. A kind of kindred spirit to Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons, a few sample poems and images follow.

 

steps 15:  waterfalls

thin straplines feint lull hush-flush flux precipice
slain tow strain low swain bow whoa-throe flow

 

steps 2:   tongues

tattle prattle rattle hail thy loves’ juju no more
plunge to thine bone and lies flail flesh flat out

 

steps ~:  blood

rip it up pip it up zip it up lip it on in
ho yip jo dip so sip go clip-it nom on
