Trish Salah: Eulalia for Mother Night


Saint Able bombs to be a Barcelona called Chloe
Saint Sometimes Soon to be Chloe accepted.

An actor decides if detours, what’s arrived
Are art is lunges male managed mind

Student soma asks attitude of spirit birds
Susana begs becoming clothes consolidated

On experience from a far farm Pretoria painted
Older person finally “friends” Dorothy who knew later

Feelings, felt film gave gender exhibition
Film enjoyed homosexual— Ibiza eventually

Theatres of countryside, of doctor Doc’s doors
Talking theatre thin or Eulalia’s exhibited Gallery

Town transsexual took trees wanted island surges
Took a walk on the weekend, a woman situation

Someone to a Warrior Prince of England
Someone relating emotional problems

Mother never thought women realized her role
Night offers interest spent, spritely: stay idea stay

Portal wise looks can seem weaker
But Erica suggested more Islands, forks


Trish Salah’s writing appears in the Journal of Medical Humanities, in the anthology Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics, and in a new broadside from Flat Singles Press, If a child is a land you may not own. Salah’s current research investigates the emergence of Transgender Minor/ity Literatures. Her first book, Wanting in Arabic, was published by TSAR in 2002 and this month was launched in a new edition. She is a co-editor of a special issue of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly, focused on Trans* Cultural Production, due out in 2014, as is my new book, Lyric Sexology, Vol. 1. Currently she is an assistant professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Winnipeg.
