Otherhood
D. A. Powell
 
 
I spent a long time preparing to be an other. 
 Evening classes at the church in the basement 
 with my partner (he wanted to be an other too) 
 panting on the floor. Breathe. Breathe. 
 We didn't fit in with the other others. 
 But we wanted to be others so we did 
 what the other experts told us. You'll be good 
 as others. Trust your natural othering instinct1
 My other instinct was to flee2. Somehow 
 I managed to be a good other, a model 
 other the others could point at and say 
 that's what an other should do. That's how 
 an other should be. I helped other others 
 other along the way. A kind of other support. 
 But I was never cut out to be an other. 
 That's the thing. I do not think other 
 well. Some others are just good at it. 
 Other others, like me, should just leave 
 it to others, and let the others take charge. 
 Who do I look like anyway. Your other.
