The war
had finally come
to us,
and as my
life partner and I
sat playing
video games
and watching
videos online,
our door
was kicked in.

We’d seen
the soldiers
in some videos
that we’d
commented on
very harshly
supporting them
(we’re pretty
socially conscious),
and now
here they were.

I couldn’t make out
much of what they
were saying,
but I definitely
heard the word


As they wrestled us
to the ground
and began stabbing us,
I couldn’t help but
be enraged
that they’d
assumed our genders.

the afterlife
is SO unfair.
You’ll see what I mean.
