Can you see me?
through the screen
through the code
through the html

can you touch me?
can we reach out
and touch some one
through static trees

yes and no
can you know
my blood, what’s
inside my bones

you can’t push
finger through web
and poke me
in my rib cage

you can’t know
the grade
of my pain
my headache

you can’t know
my number
my size &
social status

who can know?
the point at
which we break
how far we go

they must know
our lung size
& clothing style

can you hear me?
between your breaths
and sighs
and bursts of brilliance

you can’t be me
comparing dicks
and scars
and tears and such

we are we
and you are you
and he is she
and I am only me

and I am proud
and I am sad
and I am whole
and I am incomplete

and through and through
I am fucking me

and you
you are beautiful

    I’m a little behind reading my wordpress feed. This struck a cord with me, and I had to share. I love Steve’s work. He’s been my secret muse. (Shh)
