where i run with the sentient light and plant. can you see all the little hairs / the little pails? they are so bright_and_long / everything feels almost like a crime scene / i’ve never met light that cared so little for humans. 

a woman from the community college just called to say / she’s in the department that will consider me / i am on file. i hope my file grows pink aluminum over it / as way of conducting good energy. one day i hope to try to explain what / metal vegetable is.

last night we watched solaris with spicy indian cakes from the dumpster. the woman above is filled with the animal grace of neutrinos. i wonder if her blood is also blue until it hits the air. she was made from an alive alien ocean so maybe it’s more like trenchant fishdogs + lava  + mushroom linings. i would like to cinch my hair with a leather strip, too. a leather strip with a little soot on it in the forest green room / turned away from us.  

i am thinking of sea turtle nests and ancient floridian sea graves both when i go to the store to buy olive oil. they used to bury bodies in the shallows of water area / they placed gentle stick tents above them. something about that reminds me of holding turtle eggs / them glowing through my handskin / that shade of red peach. delicacy i guess. but an intensity of it. wolfgirls.

i don’t remember what we were talking about on the phone, but e said, your poems don’t necess. use the word pussy, but they evoke it, pussy, pussy. now there’s a certain dead house we pass on the way to the ocean that makes me think of the water / reclining / inclining / saying pussy, pussy. waves / raw disintegrating mounds. it is very very hard and very, very soft today. i wrote two long letters. what i miss most, i said in one, is just women / being around women. 

what sound will end the day / what sound in what creature / what hosed ivy am i in the forehead / what plastic will go by the house slapping a thigh / what tangle ceremony.

Hello beautiful internet,
For the first major step in my transition I am planning on getting laser hair removal. I am really excited about doing this, but I am (perpetually) short on funds. Here’s where you come in. For $10, I will write you an epistolary poem (a poem in the form of a letter) addressed to DEAR HAIRLESS [YOUR NAME OR YOUR MOM’S NAME OR YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECT FOR A POEM OR ANYTHING REALLY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO WRITE A POEM FOR]. I will email you this poem. I would love to do something fancy like handwrite it on a neat card and mail it to you, but honestly, I know myself, and I know what kind of promises I can keep and what kind I can’t. Emailing I can do. Mail? *makes wiggly hand gesture accompanied by ehhhhhhh sound*
If you aren’t familiar with my poetry, you can see an example of me reading one of my epistolary poems here or to read text, you can click the links on my porfolio site here.
SO. Here is the link to buy a poem. Be sure to specify your name, or else who or what I am addressing the poem to and if you would like the poem sent to an email other than your paypal email, specify that in the same box. All poems will be delivered within one week, unless something crazy happens.
All money will be used for laser hair removal. If I by some act of god end up with more money than I need for that then the money will be used for future transition-related expenses, and if I get really desperate moneywise, to feed myself.
Love,
Sara <3

Hi everyone! Quick update on this project.
1) I am still selling poems! 2) I got a lot more than I expected. The 1 week turnaround was a bit ambitious. I will get to your poem if I haven’t yet. The turnaround will be quicker once I get through the initial flood of purchases.3) Thank you thank you so much!!!!! I’ve raised over $350 and have covered the first couple sessions for sure. I’m not sure how many I will need so I’m going to keep this going but thank you all so much. You are amazing.

"One of the most significant aspects of the heretic movement is the high status it assigned to women. As Gioacchino Volpe put it, in the Church women were nothing, but here they were considered equal; they had the same rights as men, and could enjoy a social life and mobility (wandering, preaching) that nowhere else was available to them in the Middle Ages. In the heretical sects, above all among the Cathars and Waldenses, women had the right to administer the sacraments, preach, baptize and even acquire sacerdotal orders. It is reported that Waldes split from the orthodoxy because his bishop refused to allow women to preach, and it is said of the Cathars that they worshipped a female figure, the Lady of Thought, that influenced Dante’s conception of Beatrice."
