QUEER POETICS: Pidgeons by Emmi B.

by Emmi B

In spontaneous eruption

the earth revolts/

A geode sits

by the thermal pools/

oceanic crevice blues,

elegant purples,

and brimstone reds

confront our imposed

domicile of


We tremble.

A black flag and a brick

through a banks window

(or three)

in Oakland

on Sunday/

the circuitous recourse

of history

unveils itself,


“How can we sit by when our benches have been stolen?”

we scream/bloodthirsty

Nature feels/

what power/

refuses to speak
