“sǝxo𐐒 ǝsǝɥ⊥ ǝpıs⊥uO kuıɥ⊥” — Brooke Livingston ’19

So many people label everything.
Or try, at least because it can’t be done.
What good do categories really bring?
They’re shoving people in a box- or none!

 

What about those that don’t fit in these boxes?
Unreal, ignored by our society.
What are we to them but paradoxes;
They ask questions of our propriety

 

For some, their box is suitable to them;
For others, it is not all black and white.
Boxes forge hatred, differences condemned.
Although fractious, the boxless ones are right.

 

Why are there boxes? To enclose each other
is falling victim to your very brother.
