Officially A Bear
Getting too much attention for being one
Not to admit it to myself.
I’ve admired these beautiful creatures in the wild
Long before I transitioned.
Bisexual, pansexual, queer —
Just compliment me on my hair and
What does it mean to be a man
Who loves his testosterone
And his belly and his fur and his
Desire to go off in the woods—
A bear, no longer Goldilocks I am
Fully grown and my porridge is a fucking
Steak and some mushrooms, medium-perfect
Delicious as fuck.
I don’t know what my plan is but I know
I don’t mind where I’m meandering and
I’m feeling very welcome, iykwim
However things such as
“You’re very handsome despite being trans”
Are starting to wear on me.
I’m handsome, folks,
You don’t deserve me.
