bodies boiling in the water
donate my body to 1
it ripped through my deck and my feet
touched the lava and I ran out of lives
the lake is boiling again
1000 years of fog
don’t worry they’re not looking at you,
they are looking at their own death
perfect lovers by Félix González-Torres
a working definition by Talila 'TL' Lewis*: ABLEISM a·ble·ism \ ˈābə-ˌli-zəm \ noun A system that places value on people’s bodies and minds based on societally constructed ideas of normality, intelligence, excellence, desirability, and productivity. These constructed ideas are deeply rooted in anti-Blackness, eugenics, misogyny, colonialism, imperialism and capitalism. This form of systemic oppression leads to people and society determining who is valuable and worthy based on a person’s language, appearance, religion and/or their ability to satisfactorily [re]produce, excel and "behave.' You do not have to be disabled to experience ableism.
