22 Dec: They/Them Who Ancestor Work

My use of they/them as gender pronouns invokes the legacy of those who engage in ancestor work, the knowing that when I am called or referenced, so are my people: many. So is much. My experience of gender is an unplaced multitude, untamed like the spread of salt upon the earth, as many as the people who walk with me; only a nonbinary pronoun is fitting. None of us will allow for containment. Not our bones in the water, nor shouts in the air | | |
