The intolerable wrong of gender…by Edgar Whitman Wilde

our pockets are filled with stones

in conspiratorial fabrication of fictions

as chemical colors seep 

by conscious deployment of illusions

transforming human misery and violence into wit

in loquacious gestures

that fail to expose the artifice

of gender distinction 

that intolerable wrong 

that leaves stones in all our pockets
