thank you to the men who pull over on the side of the road and yell

reclaim

i.

i am here i want to say

i am here i am here i am here

i am not this or that but something in between

i am an it i am a that i am a they

i am something else entirely but my god i AM

ii.

and so i AM something indescribable

even to myself

but not to the pickup trucks

who slow down as i walk on the sidewalk

and they yell

they yell queer they yell freak they yell faggot

and i am i am i am

iii.

but i AM

and i think maybe that is all that matters

and i know what i am NOT

and i know that i AM loved

and i am the freak walking down the sidewalk

iv.

when someone tells me

thank you

i have never seen someone like you

someone like me

happy

and you are so loud and so alive

and oh i am i am i am

v.

who are you?

i am more than the sum of my parts

i am my passion and my music and my love

and i am a queer

you can not take that away from me

so every time someone says

freak queer faggot

i can say

i am i am i am
