Slowly, very slowly*

februari 25th, 2020

Slowly, slowly you rise
White light, bright light
And while we wait
And the light flickers
You speak.

Ununderstandable words
Alienating appearance
Unknown to most
You practise, you practise
Wearing the other sex.

Vierter Tag:
Dressing up to appear for a generating god
– Of all species, of man and woman, of nothing in between –
That wanders the earth in circles to the beat of the bass.

And the white-shirted, beard-braided priest
And the red-skirted, high-heeled lady
Challenge the norms
Cross-dressing shoes
For now.

Circling goatees
Circling ponytails
Reconfiguring species
Reconfiguring spaces
In between

Aligning the binary into the chaos of trans
The non-orderly, the non-ordinary bodies
Organic materials
Tattooed and scarred
Projected and doubled
Uncontrollable voids
Of nothingness.

Black holes of ununderstandable fluid nudity
Recreated, regenerated from within
To be able to match
To be able to get rid of
This other body
This other sex
To be able to embrace
This other body
This other sex
To the fullest extent
And beyond.

Merging through
Cross-dressing
Merging through
Colliding
Merging through
Bumping
Through caressing
Through rocking
Through braiding.

And slowly, slowly you rise
And come at ease
With each other
With yourself
With all attachments
With all attached
And connected.

And slowly, very slowly
You leave
You leave us to rethink
The norm.
