Cairn, 2019: girlhood xxiv

second bloom in a mirror
she steps forward in pigtails
embraces temporal dissonances
this previously quite taboo
life bound in a double plait

Cairn 2019 – republished as part of my marker of a year’s blogging, one of my trans poems, which have been so important for me, part of my own process and way forward.

this was numbered 24 only as it was written on the 24th, i thought it might help me write some more and I did make a start, though they began to have a sort of prosiness about them whilst i liked this one’s poetry, so i’ve left them for a while. i don’t know if it wasn’t as popular as it was trans, but thought i’d share it again, it was also published in the beaumont magazine.
