I identify as queer,

though to me it’s not a label,

maybe I don’t identify, I simply know…

queer is

more a reclaiming of a former insecurity

and insult, a sense of insufficiency ( is that a word)

so don’t ask me to define that….

you have asked the wrong question,

there is no answer,

I am a being


twisting and turning,

stretching and spinning,

one moment centred,

the next moment not,

queer definition is fleeting,

barriers break before me,

queer power destructive, and reconstructive,

always seeking, searching,

queer art created, then often recreated,

swirls around me,

queer is never content,

words are not sufficient,,

queer disrupts my skin,

and is often

inconveniently assertive,

then frustratingly silent…

it stirs within,

never settling,

never contained,

always unexpected….

just for kicks, yesterday, I reordered my book shelves…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway.

I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
