Waiting for permission to be me

PERFORMANCE
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
APRIL 2019


While I was waiting to become me—things happened.
like two children popped out—like i got married—like my dad died

like i said i was an artist but didn’t say i wrote—like i said i wrote but
never told you i made things—like i said i can’t make it tonight
but didn’t tell why—didn’t tell you i had two children home alone

while i was waiting i hid parts of myself from other parts of myself—i was waiting for permissio for someone to tell me how to be me—that it was ok to be me

I was waiting for you to give me permission and I forgot to ask who you were. You were everyone, you were my father, you were an unidentified omnipotent form and you were going to say, “Yes Alex”, you are ready now. Now you can be you.
