Abled

Here’s the deal though I had

Top surgery

But recently

I got an AFO brace

For my foot that drops after

I broke my back, almost

8 years ago in April.

I’ve spent my whole life

Having tits and being miserable

But one week

Of being able to walk without pain

Without worry

Without balancing all my weight

On one side, tenderly—

One week of an AFO

Has done more for me than

Almost three years of transitioning

Why does it matter?

Gender is how you express yourself

But walking —

Is fucking walking.

So much more of an obstacle than

Any pronouns, name, body part or

Anything else you can come up with that sucks

About being trans—

Being abled is totally different.

Anyway I just got a taste of it

Now I’m off to go live it.
