Donate for a Gendernaut!

So soon I’m off to take part in the filming of a short teaser for Gendernauts 2 . This will be a short film in preparation for a feature that reprises the amazing Gendernauts shot and directed by the awesome Monika Treut in San Francisco some twenty years ago. I’m not living in San Francisco right now, having  relocated recently and I’m searching for work in my new city. So, any small amount anyone can spare to help with the expense of being back in San Francisco, while the film is being made, and keeping current on my bills — is appreciated! The film should be super!

I should probably get a Patreon account at some point and all of this is on the drawing board, but till then, any small or larger contribution is appreciated at the “donate” button.

You know you are the best.  Thank you!!!


The Circle

Another poem plucked from my pile of poems written in this month of NaPoWriMo.

The Circle


The stones were not in place when I saw them

sleeping and full near the side of the road


heaven was abstract then and a dream away

we played with symbols and fetish objects for hope


only on the beach apertures began to open, flooding our senses

musical shells and iron tools were scattered on the sand


sleep came as night began to seep into the windows

the moon was radiant


I could hear the howling as soon as I got into my car

I could feel the dirt road under the wheels churning bones and the teeth of wild cats


we got out and began to search for the hunters

deer and bobcat, svelte badgers were circling at a wide distance


sight became extended , up to the stars following the long line of lights along poles

barriers become transparent, as we name the animals and call to each one
