Shaman - Horse

Poem - Asks a Price

The poem “Asks a Price” is about the gatekeeping and the associated suffering based standards of some non-normative communities.


Asks a Price

Consideration asks a price
a quota given to admit
those desiring passage to
the lettered realms confirming self

these domains are only blessed
by occupants residing there
it’s no wonder that obstacles
are erected as consequence

identity is denied
as a measure that complies
with the checklist written by
experts docked with battle scars

instead dire standards are applied
disregarding pretentious folks
deemed so by their eager wills
to exist outside of ills.
