For My Queer Brothers and Sisters in Orlando
 
Pulse

We're just queer folk.

We're not hurting anyone.

Just trying to live our lives,

as true to ourselves as we can be.

We don't have any agenda, like you claim.

We adopt the children you don't want.

We get up in the mornings,

take showers,

get dressed,

eat breakfast, and

go to work.

We're not that different.

Maybe more compassionate,

but you have to be when the

entire world seems to want you dead.

We're just queer folk.

We want to be loved.

We want to give love back.

We're not dangerous, like you claim.

We're not scary monsters.

We're really not that different.

But for some reason we don't get,

you are all trying to kill us.

One of you succeeded,

but you didn't break us.

We are still here, living our lives,

trying to be as true to ourselves as we can be.

You've just made a commitment to support my artistic endeavors. This fulfills my wildest dreams in a way you can't imagine. I feel your love and support and appreciate it beyond measure. For your participation, I promise to give you links to hidden videos I've made on youtube.com, offer downloads of my recorded work, or high res images of my art for you to do with as you please. These will include, videos of my spoken word, put to images from my web cam days, and videos made from live web cam broadcasts of me actually making art. The downloads will be either newly recorded poetry, or high resolution photographs I've taken and manipulated, or high res photos of art I have painted or glued or set on fire or whatever I have done to it. NOW INCLUDING exclusive Patreon membership to the private side of my website, fabulousdisaster.com, full of photos and goodies and a private bulletin board for conversation. And my eternal gratitude.

You're stepping up now, taking a larger chunk of yourself, and putting it on the line, I see that and I treasure it. I could type “thank you” until my fingers fly off and still not express how grateful I am. For stepping in this deep, you will get the treasures mentioned above, plus a picture of me or a piece of my art, or a photograph I've taken, every three months. I'm not sure quite how I will work it yet, most likely set up a page with choices and have you email me the choice you want. NOW INCLUDING exclusive Patreon membership to the private side of my website, fabulousdisaster.com, full of photos and goodies and a private bulletin board for conversation.

Wow, you! This is the price of a latte. I don't know that I compare with a latte, but hey, thank you for your faith in me, I will do my best to live up to the expectations you have just set up. As a reward for your generous patronage, you get all the goodies listed above, plus one medium sized multi-media painting/collage per year, access to live web cam artings, and if I set up some kind of chat thing, then that. I know it is a sacrifice that you are making here. And in light of that I will probably add some nifty things on to this as I get set up. NOW INCLUDING exclusive Patreon membership to the private side of my website, fabulousdisaster.com, full of photos and goodies and a private bulletin board for conversation.

I don't expect anyone to make this kind of commitment. But should you take leave of your senses and take the leap, the money will be going toward getting my first real EP recorded and distributed. So, as well as the premiums listed above for the other patron levels, for this level, I will add something that is very much a sacrifice to me: a phone call. And when I publish the second edition of “Stop Poking Me, Lady” (and you have been a patron for three months or more at this level), I will send you a copy. Autographed only if you want it to be. And if and when the EP comes out, you will get a copy of that. NOW INCLUDING exclusive Patreon membership to the private side of my website, fabulousdisaster.com, full of photos and goodies and a private bulletin board for conversation.
