This was the first poem I wrote in my 28th year as I began to reflect on life (or lyfe). The poem was written at two different moments. The bold sections were added several weeks after I wrote the initial piece and gained more information on this lyfe event.

experiment

of

Love yourself.

And put yourself out there.

All of it, girl.

Because

We talk about

her braids

our boos

rent 

composting

what it’s like 

to move in with people 

sunglasses

double bagging

grocery store plastic bags

and repurposing them.

We talk about

what she’s doing for

maybe I’ll see you at Pride Ball.

We hug

It comes in waves

Gratitude

and 

Resentment 

it's a tricky seesaw

I'm pretty sure this what people call

Adulting.

my pussy and my crack (hurt)

Adulting.

sometimes I think I'm too old

for short shorts

cowboy boots

and snapchat

Adulting.

It's hard to be vulnerable. 

You held my side 

as we stood at Stonewall

West 4th

the vigil

I read of a young couple

whose funeral is their marriage.

Silver hair

tight on the sides

effortlessly flows upward.

She notices words.

Remembers how others

use language.

She shares the same name as my mother.

Her wedding plans were featured in a marriage magazine

The Vow

The Knot

Standing on the platform

transfer at Bedford-Norstand

People look down each direction

Anticipating the train.

But I don't believe anyone actually knows

from which direction the train's coming 

or for that matter

we're all going.
