Non-Binary by Stella Hervey Birrell

Oct 3, 2018

shedding layers of
title, pronoun, expectations
like clothes
dumped in
the messy
trail from
the stairs to
the bath

The most
neutral –
they, them, their –
moulding a community
into acceptance
sure they are
malleable into a perfect
sculpture of tolerance.

to their own needs
unawareness complete and
couched in complaints about

that seven year old
who used ‘sister,’
instead of ‘sibling.’
