QUEERNESS

The scrim of queerness
Becomes an essence
When the ought to be recedes,
Gilded by being in itself
Stipples of otherness
Felt as intimations
Become signs of precognition
Betokening a palimpsest
Except that what lies beneath
Are inchoate hieroglyphs
Deepening meaning elsewhere
Always beyond language
Moments when an irremovable despair
Tightens its eldritch talons
I breathe it in, coloring with polychrome
Hues which, intermingling, dissolving
Delineate each texture , mnemonic
As both it and connected
With the fibres of interconnection which
Dapple the human soul, without and within.
