When I had just turned 6, I was pulled in two…for the next 45 years…
45 years. Sounds like a prison sentence, doesn’t it?
“Charissa, we the jury sentence you to 45 years hard labor
in the male body penitentiary, no parole, no time off for good behaviour.
And you can never know what exactly is wrong with you
just that something is…wrong with you.
You are required to only know about part of yourself,
the other half belongs to us, in the name of gender, amen.”
