Passing

Passing (self portrait in public spaces)

How do I pass…Let me describe the ways:

As a free person.
I sit amongst the people
Ankle encased in gps tracker
Long pants, smiling and talking
Pretending I am free.

As a sane person.
I sit amongst the people
Psyche meds in bag
Wine glass in hand
Pretending to be calm and sane.

As a straight person.
I sit amongst the people
Lipstick, mascara, and painted nails
High boots (to cover the gps tracker) and short skirt
Pretending nothing: knowing my truth.
