Yesterday I crossed out every S and let HE stand by itself. It felt good, but it wasn’t the cure. Today I bent the H into a Z. Nothing much happened. Stuck a few letters in front of it: CIZ. Sure, okay, maybe. …Or maybe not. Scribbled TRANS down the side of the paper.

Crumpled it up. Changed my mind, smoothed it over. Opened the window and let all the ink run together in the rain.

The paper wasn’t strong enough to hold. It fell apart in my hands.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
