i’m not a poem, i’m not a word, i’m not a book, i’m not a device, i’m not a comma, i’m not a dot, a sign, a mark, i’m not a question, i’m not an answer, i’m not a reply, i’m not order, i’m not chaos, i’m not stellar, i’m not planetary, i’m not music, i’m not death, i’m not bipolar, i’m not dual, i’m not singular, i’m not a voice, i’m not noise, i’m not somebody, i’m not nobody, i’m not glam, i’m not goth, i’m not rock, i’m not pop, i’m not opera, i’m not rap, i’m not a princess, i’m not a queen, i’m not a slave, i’m not crucial, i’m not a funeral, i’m not a negation, i’m not an essence, i’m not a cube, i’m not a circle, i’m not fresh, i’m not rotten, i’m not black, i’m not yellow, i’m not white, i’m not khaki, i’m not colorful, i’m not colorless, i’m not perfect, i’m not flawed, i’m not an anarchist, i’m not a socialist, i’m not a corporate, i’m not a farmer, i’m not a feminist, i’m not a radical, i’m not an equalizer, i’m not a father, i’m not an atheist, i’m not the virgin mary, i’m not the holy trinity, i’m not one, i multiply. i’m not innocent, i’m not dirty, i’m not the devil, i’m not a lamb, i’m not sexual, i’m not asexual, i’m not bisexual, i’m not gay, i’m not queer, i’m not a gender, i’m not male, i’m not transgender, bigender, i’m not a crowd pleaser, i’m not forever, i’m not now, i’m not blank, i’m not full, i’m not a label, i’m not a segment, i’m not a pattern, i’m not a dollar, i’m not a song, a sound, an echo, i’m not a commercial, i’m not an ally, i’m not a terrorist, i’m not suicidal, i’m not life, i’m not a hero, i’m not a worker, i’m not a player, i’m not a spirit, a body, a mourning soul, i’m not.
