Reflexivity of Gender

I am the
man to your woman
the woman to your man
the stocky masculine shoulders
that flow down into breasts.
“Assigned
Female
at
Birth”
tells only a very short story.

Not even to say that I am no longer female
because sometimes I may be,
but my birth says nothing about my now.
My now says nothing about my now.
