Listen

I’ve ended up in some

Pretty strange situations

As a transgender man.

It used to be that

People would listen

Until they found a reason

Not to listen. Now—

They listen to every single word I say

Hanging on to each of them —

I can feel their weight sway.

If I wanted to

I could do some serious, serious damage

With this new power I have

But I won’t—

Because of the perspective I have,

A lifetime of being dismissed.
