Read Kayleb Rae Candrilli's new crown of sonnets!

Kayleb Rae Candrilli's beautiful crown of sonnets, "Transgender Heroic: All This Ridiculous Flesh," has been published up at The Normal School. This work is such an incredible accomplishment. Thank goodness for Candrilli's brilliance in the world!


from Transgender Heroic: All This Ridiculous Flesh


We have survived on what those who have

hurt us, have taught us. What a sweet

and sour life this is. Hand me a coffee

cup of copper nails. Let me show you

how much can be built with only glue.


Check out this beautiful accompanying video up on Candrilli's Instagram, put together by their partner, Jack Papanier.
