without examples, without models, i began to believe voices in my head that i was a freak, that i am broken, that there is something wrong with me, that i will never be lovable
years later i find the courage to admit that i am transgender, and that this does not mean that i am unlovable
so that this world that we imagine in this room might be used to gain access to other rooms, to other worlds, previously unimaginable
(who are you? why would you come to me?)
Burial – Come Down To Us (Rival Dealer, 2013)
what’s never spoken
words washed away
forgotten, out to sea
these endless moments
they fall from me
and swept away
what the hell am i doing here?
Chicane – What Am I Doing Here? (Part 2) (Giants, 2010)
do you trust in who i am?
do you believe in where i stand?
cos you save me from myself

who am i?
Peace Orchestra – Who Am I? (Peace Orchestra, 1999)
fuck you and your book too
you can have it back

will be my tracts
Porcupine Tree – Even Less (Recordings, 2001)
The Humble Brothers – Neighborhood (Cinematix, 2006)
have you ever lost someone?
screamed holy mary down the hall?
or cried against the steering wheel
and hated every mirror you ever saw?
Augustines – Nothing to Lose But Your Head (Augustines, 2014)
