Day 67: Threadless.. work in progress

I was born within the language of words that surrendered gender in the birth of seaborne tangled tongues

In Hawaiian, pronouns specify only numbers and not gender

And this ocean grown language seems to closer understand the fluidity of my identity

I was raised by men

In a language where it failed to acknowledge the difference between my self and them

I must have learned to read between the lines before god had read between his

But this was all yesterday

Before Jesus

Before dictionaries our words

Were seamless

The stitches holding my skin to my heard

Thread less
