Poem - Rejecting Claims

The poem “Rejecting Claims” is about personal measures of beauty relative to the opinions of the larger group.


Rejecting Claims

Consider the source of beauty’s fount
originating from deviance
aberration now embraced
when straying from sterility

attraction stated by the self
rejecting claims from beyond
by the pundits who exclaim
what’s the best for charm’s grace

in the mirror of other’s eyes
a choice is made with regard
for the splendor that waits beyond
conventions sought in twisted thoughts

these reflections offer hints
where the queer meets the kink
the final path to elegance
lays beyond convention’s bliss.
