I, The Rare Bird, would like to announce that I have taken back possession of my feathered pelt.
I would like to commemorate this occasion by initiating another sex worker into the sisterhood and passing on one of my favorite pieces of lingerie. Are you a (small!) 32B in Agent Provocateur or I.D. Sarrieri and if so, do you have your eye on a favorite set from my photos?
I will not disappear entirely. I am publishing a book of poetry in the spring under this name. Also, the mermaid ritual / sisterhood initiation project I've spoken of is an important one to me, which I am still designing. I'd like to tie it to an oral history project and use the opportunity to collect our stories together, anonymized, for posterity. We will combat shame by creating grandeur for ourselves and by making sure that we are remembered in our own voices. Let me know if you'd like to participate.
