[Poetry] Selectasmear

gender spect

between nought and one
lies a fragmented land
one that goes on for forever
but it’s bounded by edges
hedges of certainty and plateauing odds
ledges of long shots, potentials

everything flattens towards them

this realm of probability
contains everything
all the maybes and somewhats and ifs
the babies and raindrops and gifs of cats
fractions of lives
or prurient percentiles
menial shards of our mundane existence
categorized for posterity

humans round ruthlessly:
chance becomes certainty
almost is nearly just more or less one

gender is not an exception
to stand in the middle is tough
when conventional current drags to one side
it leaves your thoughts ragged and rough
