Requiem for the Trans Dead, First Movement
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Rest not, rest not, rest not, but cross over–
cross over, you who have crossed over,
crossed over from gender to gender,
from the false to the true: Rise up,
rest not, there is a light in the darkness
there is water in the desert
there are voices calling in the emptiness
Rise up, cross over, come home.
