1950s satchel of handstitched bridle leather (boarding school issue), library by the Aberystwyth quayside breeze. straw boater, strap biting chin and laser scars. tea, scones, hormones. well known secrets overheard through used books just perchanced. terrified courage in the speciality gained by long shades in the trans lanes. and though we hate each other ... we have uncovered the same ... and to those firsts shared by from those before me -- thank you.
i press winding hair into hat ribbon, threading the organic and blue silk. all sensations converge in the undoing of hiding. the death of never appearing. here for the after I am as I always knew to be: me -- no more shame of the dusk train back to wrong presentation towns.
