Musing about how gender-fluidity feels to me.

---

"Allow me to breathe in motion, loosely and water like,"

Fluidity

Let me break down the atoms

Let me break down the atoms of my body, with gentle hands,

and re-purpose them into

and re-purpose them into a new mold.

Let them scramble apart,

Let them scramble apart, bump into each other,

Let them scramble apart, bump into each other, reconnect and reform

Let them scramble apart, bump into each other, reconnect and reform on their own volition,

with a new name,

with a new name, new skin,

with a new name, new skin, same bones.

Let them spill out like

Let them spill out like ink let loose from

Let them spill out like ink let loose from my pen nib, stretching

Let them spill out like ink let loose from my pen nib, stretching and yawning

over the white canvas of

over the white canvas of paper, twisting into shapes

over the white canvas of paper, twisting into shapes and forms inscrutable

over the white canvas of paper, twisting into shapes and forms inscrutable and familiar all the same.

Allow me to breathe

Allow me to breathe in motion, loosely and

Allow me to breathe in motion, loosely and water like, waiting,

to be poured

to be poured into another cup.

And tear away the concern

of how to dress or

of how to dress or speak or

of how to dress or speak or be.

Allow me to be soft today,

and sturdy tomorrow,

and hold the expectation

that further along I will

that further along I will shudder and crack

that further along I will shudder and crack and reform again.
