I am new here.  I have been writing poetry for two years since I came out as trans.  My poetry is at Branwen Drew – My Poetry. I have had one poem published in print in an anthology, New York’s Best Emerging Poets 2019: An Anthology.

Here is my most recent poem, MISSING.

<p id=”de6e” class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>I missed many things growing up,
Leaving me with many a hang-up.</p>
<p id=”5cde” class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>My mother is gone.
Can’t show her the path I am on.</p>
<p id=”efd2″ class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>No mother-daughter talks.
No shopping trips and walks.</p>
<p id=”af92″ class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>I want to talk about fashion with my sister.
She will not; she still grieves for her brother.</p>
<p id=”9214″ class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>No senior prom, no slow dance, or first kiss at sixteen.
No chance to be that beautiful prom queen.</p>
<p id=”c534″ class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>No corsage pinned on me by a date,
No slow dance with a handsome classmate.</p>
<p id=”55bc” class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>Never a bridesmaid and never a bride?
Am I to be denied?</p>
<p id=”c8a3″ class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>Never feel the pains and joys of childbirth,
Never to feel that worth.</p>
<p id=”ae64″ class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>Never a mother?
Just a father?</p>
<p id=”720b” class=”ii ij fn ik b il im in io ip iq ir is it iu iv iw ix iy iz ja jb jc jd je jf ff cs” data-selectable-paragraph=””>I see a woman when I look in the mirror;
And sometimes I wonder, “Is it just a veneer?”</p>
