Literature
Wiccan Rede: Sabbats
Four times the Major Sabbats mark
in the light and in the dark:
As the old year starts to wane,
the new begins with Samhain.
When flowers blossom through the snow
fair Brighid casts her seed to sow.
When winter yields to warmths return
let the Beltane fires burn.
As the wheel turns to Lamas night
the Horned one shall wane in might.
Four times the Minor Sabbats fall
use the Sun to mark them all:
At Yuletide, with feast and mirth
we celebrate the Horned Ones birth.
Spring Equinox, Eostara's fest,
all newborn creatures will be blessed.
When the Sun has reached its height
celebrate Midsummer’s light.
Offer thanks at second reaping;
Mabon poised for winter's sleeping.

Literature
Wiccan Rede: wood
Nine woods in the Cauldron go,
burn them quick and burn them slow;
Birchwood in the fire goes
to tell us true what Goddess knows.
Oak trees tower great with might,
burn the Oak for God's insight.
Rowan is a tree of power
causing life and magick to flower.
Willows at the waters stand
to help us to the Summerland.
Hawthorn burn to purify
and draw fay folk to your eye.
Hazel tree, the wizened sage,
lends strength that comes with honoured age.
White the flowers of Apple tree,
the holy gift of fecundity.
Grape grows upon the fruitful vine,
sacred gifts of joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen,
to represent immortality seen
Elder be the Lady's tree -
Burn it not or cursed ye'll be.

Literature
Wiccan Rede: Circles, moon phases, and wind
Cast the circle thrice about,
to keep unwelcome spirits out.
Deosil go by waxing Moon,
sing and dance the invoking Rune.
Widdershins go when the moon doth wane,
embracing knowledge of the arcane.
To bind the spell well every time,
let the spell be spake in rhyme.
When the Lady's Moon is new,
kiss thy hand to Her times two.
When the Bow rides in the eve,
turn to what you would achieve.
When the Moon rides at Her peak,
then thy heart's desire seek.
When the Sickle shows Her face
release the old with proper grace.
Heed the North wind's mighty gale,
lock the door and trim the sail.
When the wind hales from the South,
love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind blows from the West,
hearts will find their peace and rest.
When the wind blows from the East,
expect the new and set the feast.

Literature
Wiccan Rede: the basics
Bide the Wiccan Rede ye must,
In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust;
Live ye must and let to live,
fairly take and fairly give.
Soft of eye and light of touch,
speak ye little, listen much.
Greet the Days and greet the Nights
with joy and thanks for all delights.
Sing the seasons all around
til wondrous awe and love abound.
True in love ever be
lest thy love be false to thee.
Where the rippling waters flow
cast a stone and truth ye'll know.
Heed ye flower, bush, and tree,
and by the Lady Blessed be.
With the fool no season spend,
nor be counted as his friend.
When you have and hold a need,
harken not to others greed.
When misfortune is enow,
wear the blue star on thy brow.
Mind the Threefold Law ye should,
three times bad and three times good.
This lesson well, thou must know
ye only reap what ye doth sow.
Follow this with mind and art,
bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Merry meet and merry part.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill – An it harm none, do what thou wilt.

Literature
I wouldn't want to be xrys bestfriend
I’m standing by the roots of the elderwood hill, giggling, as pomegranate juice pools 'round my ankles, fettering me
in place as misgendered beeswax words are gagged down my throat and up my nose, caulking shut my ears.
Brazing tear ducts with bloody solder and wood tar, anointing me with cedar rust. Till numb, hollowed;
with lungs rent from my body-- to be displayed in canopic jars. And a stomach cut
open-- adorned with jackals drunk on formaldehyde salts, filled with rocks
and unto the river cast. My body, flotsam, crosses
the northeastern border as they pray
lily and juniper berry
epithets.
And though my own inertia
may bar me from Summerland forevermore;
I would rather die unknowing-- shrouded in darkness,
drowning in chaos primeval, then live as the doll
you wish me to be. By my will,
so mote it be.
I hope this hurts, I hope
it fucks you up. Three times
three times three. Blessed be.

Growing up
When I was born I starved
myself, for a whole of four months--
whether in resignation of my worth
or as an act of defiance
I will never know. I don’t remember
why we came to resent each other.
When I was one I was dropped
from the arms of my mother to the arms of a child
to the carpeted floor of a photography studio.
Everyone I love has amassed skill
in letting me fall, though they have yet
to surpass me.
When I was two I was given
a sister to whom everything I am
was devoted, to me she
was a pulsar keeping rhythm and to her
I was a remnant to irradiate into brilliance.
When I was three I mourned
my great grandmother, the core
of our family. She freely gave
kindness so ardently--
she must have felt the iron,
building up heavy in her heart.
I hate that I cannot remember.
When I was four I sat
in the far corners of bars
alone, finding pictures
of stars and summerland
in the kaleidoscopes of neon
reflecting in raindrops.
When I was five I dreamed
of sisters trapped and drowning.

Literature
If you ever were to hurt me,
Xe would shed every law and moral
xe cowled ximself within-
for if I was the cost xe must pay
to avoid mutually assured destruction,
if my pain paved xyrs path
to peace in the garden of our lord,
xe would spit in god's face and set ximself ablaze.
Xe would skirt all boundaries of time and place-
for why does it matter what custom dictates proper
within a society that commodifies suffering,
you failed to offer me due process-
why should you deserve better?
Xe would remake ximself into a weapon.
Judge, jury, and executioner.
Xe would not rest until all of me was appeased.
But if you ever were to hurt xim; xe would let you. To all things there is order.

Literature
The Nature of Suicide
Ever they sing about all they don’t know-- “Suicide
is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.”
Do they not understand permanence?
Or do they honestly believe
that we’re looking
for resolution?
This isn’t a feeling,
it’s a disease-- Killing me
slowly, and numbing me to the pain.
Corroding my perception and emptying me,
isolating my thoughts from my sense of self
until I can’t think, I can’t breathe.
And I hate myself all the more
for becoming such
a burden.
“Think of your family,”
they wail, and I do. I think
of all the times I begged for aid,
and all the times they denied me--
deemed their idea of me more
important than my reality.
My end feels so inevitable,
like my every salvation is for naught
but drawing out our suffering. Every breath an agony,
every moment an opiate-- numbing you to the neurons screaming
for you to stop walking on a broken limb. Something's going to have to give,
if it won’t be you-- it

ace of pentacles
I am fractured;
cowled in shadows cast
by the shards of my sanity,
bewitched by the stillness
of my heart 'tween beats.
So overwhelmed  
by my own fragility,
that I never asked.
Why I felt like a lost boy exiled
from Neverland, and yet
never interested in dates
nor stolen kisses. All I knew
was what I wasn’t--  
all I thought that left
was broken.
Until I found a tarot deck,
the arcane tools soothing
something I had forsaken.
I overturn the top card
and the embossed image
of a single pentagram
imprints itself into my fingertips,
I feel I am coming home.
I’ve developed a love for playing cards--
particularly aces and fools,
yet suit still confounds.
For neither heart nor spade
encapsulates. I am neither,
yet I am both-- something new
I build myself in diamonds.
