Every Tuesday

20 August, 2013

Every Tuesday
Across 1400 miles
Of separateness
i Skype with my parents

Every Tuesday
In scheduled family time
my supportive Father
Misgenders me, again

Every Tuesday
‘He’ as me slips from his
Lined and gentle mouth
Then a corrected ‘she’

Every Tuesday
Across a two year span
Of intimacy
we lose a little more
