The Gap

The Gap: A disabling breed of privilege, and also an escape,  and also a product of internalizing ableist discourses and leading with shame-of, instead of pride.  Sometimes I go there willingly, too afraid to go anywhere else. At other times I feel as though I’ve been forcefully removed.

I consider the question of passing.

I pass and then those times where I don’t, I hide in the gap.  The gap is both oppressive and a place of refuge.
