To all of the kick ass, beautiful fierce femmes out there...

This is an amazing poem by Ivan Coyote. I love all the details in this. I love that he acknowledges how painful heels are sometimes. And I love his catalogs, especially of the various, so-called "imperfections" on the body.
There are so many amazing lines like "Please don't stop looking at me." I also loved his "sometimes my chest is a field of landmines."
And finally, the wonderful sense of humor that Coyote has here. His comments about accidents involving pendants was great.
The political message, about queer pride and acknowledging how we fight oppressions in our everyday life.
