Disability Theory by Su Zi

Image: A thin, bare torso in sepia tones. Across the belly are the words "This is a disabled body".
I am turning invisible.
When is when
Where's the line
Why are there lines?
Birds don't recognize any logic
to fences. Everyone should
feed the birds
It says so in Mary Poppins.
But that was a bird herself
They can talk, you know.
Discuss in your best bird, your
best Charlie Parker, your best
dangle from a career criminal
already dead in Louisiana.
I dare you
Discuss disability
Okay dare
