hot on the heels of katy perry’s
late-2000s bisexual anthem
“i kissed a girl” & probably
just after dodgeball taught me
what bisexual means, i am trans
fixed by the worry lines between
my best friend’s brows, want to
kiss them specifically. don’t we
all? seventh grade self thinks
we do, still pretends to be kissing
a boy when she’s alone with her
pillow, but remembers those
worry lines, commits their creases
to memory with a soft gaze.
