Queering the Triathlete (and Other Discomforts)

A Melancholy Zebra determined to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

The Resonant Frequency of the Heart

Again, I defy my own label and present a less snarky post. I want to explain in my terms what it’s like to have the emotional sensitivity of an anemone. In a poem!! I wrote a poem. Lord help us.

Yeats’ poem “Earth, Fire, and Water” reads:

We can make our minds so still like water

that beings gather around us, that they

may see their own images, and so live for

a moment with a clearer perhaps even a

fiercer life because of our quiet.

I am reflective, but not at all like still water.
