They

“They”
is where I am for now,
non-committal alternative to being part
of language.
The non-committal alternative to feeling
included in culture and humanity.
“They” is the non-committal alternative to
he and she, the things that burn when they greet me,
the things that find me in a dishonest place
ā€“ that find me in every place ā€“
it doesn’t fit
it doesn’t fit
why would you choose a language that relies on implication?
