Three decades of working the margins
because that's what it is.
This ain't text book stuff
but invention, created, cooked up.
Out of lives and stories factual enough
but with the slant eyed version
that sounds like Chinese.
A name that means John but
gets lost in translation.
So do the lives that join into one
become monstrous and angelic.
You say that cannot be. You
cannot combine them.
Yes you can I say. Just look at me.
