a teaser of my forthcoming debut collection of poetry ESTROGENESIS.
featured are two poems, titled BOOKWORM and GHOST GIRL.
opening with BOOKWORM, i trace the origin story of my gender across the coasts of Newfoundland & Labrador. unpacking the beginnings and endings of (my)Self in my environment as a rural queer & trans youth, how i navigate(d) transitions of gender and time is detailed in this selection.
followed by GHOST GIRL, this highlight piece outlines the tract of all the parts of me that make me woman, as well as all those that make me trans. it is the precise dissection of an intersection that has served as the foreground of my early adulthood. after years of sucking in a multiplicity of messages, memories, and experience as a trans/woman, i spit out this poem in hope that any who injest it can get a taste of the core of trans womanhood.
