ACTS OF SELF-LOVE  

“Love doesn’t dominate, it cultivates” - Goethe

 

 

In some countries, my way of being is a crime

 

I refuse to hide

I acknowledge the multiplicity of the self

I am reclaiming my abandoned parts

 

 

I offer self-love as a political act

 

A loving disruption

To the policing of the queer body

 

 

I open a space for you to witness my otherness

And question your own

 

To be both the disrupted

And the disruption

 

 

All

marginalised

identities

intersect.

 

 

Our histories have been erased.

This denial of our past, threatens our existence in the present.

 

 

 

 

(I am making a connection between)    VISIBILITY

 

 

 

(and the)                                                    VISIBLE ABILITY

 

 

(being visibly able to engage in)

SELF-LOVE

 

 

 

 

I’m going to show you, here

Is my becoming/are the culminations of my death-defying acts

Laid bare

In the hopes that if I show you mine, you’ll show me yours

 

And together we can question these systems of hate we’ve found ourselves in
