"I do not believe that poststructuralism entails the death of autobiographical writing, but it does draw attention the the difficulty of the "I" to express itself through the language available to it. For this "I" that you read is in part a consequence of grammar that governs the availability of persons in language. I am not outside the language that structures me, but neither am I determined by the language that makes this "I" possible. This is the bind of self-expression, as I understand it."-- Judith Butler, from the 1999 Preface to Gender Trouble

my childhood nickname was ethel merman.
my cabbage patch dolls were cannibals.
i would like to play scrabble competitively
and manage an arts collective with my sexy librarian someday.
though a wise boy once told me that i will either become famous
or end up in jail.
