two tiny poems

letter to baba II
20 march 2011

dear baba,
when you call
the person in the silver car
who honks at you
a faggot,
you
are doing
violence
to me.
stop.

on surviving
23 march 2011

i won’t be
fragile
your idea of fragile
when i’m not
& when i’m not
okay
i won’t be
your idea
of not okay
& when i am
okay
it will be
honest.
