*Marching Band*

I got off before girls started getting
their sex change operations.
I didn't stop to look. I got off
with my organs intact. I got off a lot.

I got offered a sex change operation.
and I got one or two, then I gave up
everything but breathing.
I tried the lacy pants, but they itched.

What is a girl, anyway?

*Camille Roy*

*from "Untitled, 1933"*

Emptiness needs no defense.

Space cannot be damaged.

No one can do anything to it.

An opinion or image can be attacked and hurt
but the space in which the opinion or image exists

is indestructible.

*Arnold J. Kemp*
