fucking me.

i am me
i am not peter
not cantelon/mccarty/valeriote/samuels/omansky

i am me
only me

no dad
but definitely not
imacculately conceived
i had no man to model
so i am not man
i am not woman
maybe both, not either
but a better woman
made me a better man
that i might know i am neither

i am me
and she was she
i am not straight/gay/lesbian/trans/2 spirit
i am not husband/father/brother/son/uncle
i am invisible and visibly here
and brazenly standing right in front of you

not christian/jew/muslim/buddhist
not atheist/agnostic/believer

i am me
only me

can’t
you
see

just me

not liberal/conservative/communist/anarchist
not tall or short
not sexual or asexual

i’m not gen x or millenial or any
in between
fuck every distinction ever made
by cowards and our lazy oligarchy

i am me and me alone
and me in the midst of it all

no box or cubby or file
no friend no foe
no personality test or horoscope
defines me…not you…just me
only me

i want to be
just be
in a sea
of labeled shit
that makes it easy
to know who to hate
and i am not white/black/brown/red/yellow
just me

it is enough
it is everything
to take my place
to sing whatever song i choose to sing
it is enough

i am none of these things
and maybe i am everything
i am dead and i am alive
and i am beyond it all
and bound right here
forever and never

i am me
why can’t you see
it has always been this way
today tomorrow and yesterday

i am me

i am who i am
has always been
will always be

i am

me.
