my friends were
snips and snails and puppy dog tails
or
sugar and spice and everything nice.

i was the space between the words:
"girls on one side;
boys on the other."  
rainbows and pails and sugar-snails,
that's what genderqueers are made of.
I hope you like it. I've been toying with this concept for a while, but I'm not sure I did it justice... The last line was hard to get right because "that's what genderqueer is made of" sounded better than "that's what genderqueers are made of," but I decided on the latter because it was closer to the wording of the original saying.
Should I change it back to the first one?
I like the idea of "sugar-snails." :giggle:


This is dedicated to someone who knows who they are. :heart:

makes you think huh. :O It's a very thought provoking poem on the fine line between femininity and masculinity and those who stand on that line and refuse to move to either side. Wonderful piece, my dear. wonderful piece. :D

but you keep thanking me. :O I think that's very mannerly and is the definition of a kindly mannered person. You have class by thanking someone. Although, personally, I feel we all should be thanking you... you're classy enough to come back to us and thank us in the end. :D:D:D

But how can I not thank you? You took the time to read my poem, and not only that but the time to comment on it as well. :D And I appreciate that very much. ;)
