Things that are not okay to say to a trans* person
: "I know you don't really go by it, but I'm going to still call you [birth name] because that's what I'm used to. Sorry"
: "don't be mad, but I don't think I'll ever be able to view you as a [gender] to be honest. Sorry'
: "I just don't feel comfortable using that name/those pronouns with you...you know?"
: "don't worry, I told them you were transgender"

Where is the line between illness and insanity?
When did my heart
become the same shade as my eyes?
How can I differentiate between
the beating of my heart
and the drumming in my ears?
What inexhaustible force
raises the bumps on my skin each time
the piano hums the major triad from that song
I heard you play thirteen days after we last kissed?
Why do my tears taste like penitence
and why do my kisses burn your skin
and why is my blood thinner than water
and why do I feel the grand desire to shed my exterior
and bury my head in the earth
and stay until branches are sprouting from my ankles?
Who are you to tell me
I am worthy of love?
Who am I to tell you
you are wrong?

"You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things."
