wrtch

The English "wretch" is derived from the Old Norse "rekkr," a name for an exile or outsider.  In some histories, this was one of the first derogatory names given to the Romani speaking tribes coming from the East after being forced from their lands in South India. The Romani peoples are better known by a current much appropriated racial derogation, "gypsy." wrtch is my reclamation as a descendant of the Romani diaspora.

I am only

sensory

experience.

the movement

carries the weight

over

a

stillness

breeds silence

where i crave

none

other than a whores mouth

mothers tongue

licked

but i was clean before

i

came

without

a woman to cry

man is nothing.

the movement

carries the sickness

over

i

keep your habits

 

FUTURE IS NOW
