Poem - Gender That Confirms

The poem “Gender That Confirms” is about the support I’ve received for my transgendered side. While I have very slowly paced myself, for reasons, my female allies have been wonderful.


Gender That Confirms

Affection of the female kind
just the friendship finally found
is the salve for the questing heart
coming from a former self

without confusion that the meek
is the state for woman’s grace
just as fierce with wit that cuts
in defense of worldly strikes

the communal behind a veil
a front exacted against the pain
allowing entry of the type
once existing on the far side

now entranced by support
once estranged before the turn
to the gender that confirms
affection from the female kind.
