experience,

sit there in your heartache features a series of spoken word videos created in an effort to visually illustrate pivotal poems from the collection. the series also includes a set of intimate photos that capture my growing connection to — and embracing of — my femininity in all its forms, through style.

spoken word

a visual experience of sit there in your heartache through spoken word

words from the things i hold, undefined

spoken word


words from the things that changed,

i am going to let you sit there,
in incredible discomfort
watch you squirm,
at the sight of my beauty
in the presence of my magic
go ahead, take it in

— forever queer, forever brown

spoken word

spoken word

words from the things that grew,

people say i’m brave,
assume my journey is a lonely one,
but there are people surrounded by people,
that are incredibly lonely
so yes, I may be here on my own,
but i’m not lonely
my soul keeps my heart company

raphael, 25

spoken word

and a dragonfly passed by as we walked 

and dragonflies only mean one thing for me 

that everything will be okay
