What are interesting poems or poets that use gender-neutral pronouns?

I am especially interested in work that uses spellings like "ze" and "hir," rather than the singular "they." Bonus points if at least some of the poems are about gender issues.

The Lovers Dictionary is a book-sized poem describing a relationship and never revealing genders. No interesting pronouns, to the point that i read the whole thing without realizing i didn't know the genders

This is not a poem but a song - Owen Pallett, I Am Not Afraid uses "ze". They are non-binary as well.
