Kink and Queer/Distillation
It really seems to suck
That Queer stuff
Are always pre-packaged together
Queers are not kinky, and
Kink is not queer, but
You can be both, or one or the other
And still be included in the queer community–
However, to be a
Queer identifying person
And to experience
So much assumption and bigotry
About your sexual preferences
Is obnoxiously tiring and annoying–
Nobody deserves that.
It’s also unfair to kinky people
To be assumed to be queer, just because
They are kinky in some way or another.
I happen to be a bit both but
I don’t really want to talk about it as if
They are the same.
I don’t want anyone
Conflating my sexuality
To a fetish or a fixation
It just isn’t, it is many things
Many complicated moving things, that are
Kink and queer are not the same thing
Nothing is one thing, or two things
Everything is many things
Please stop distilling me down
Till I’m nothing–
I’m starting to steam.
