September 2018

This was the third poem of this kind that I wrote, back in 2009. If I was to write it again I doubt I would write it in the same way — some of the couplets use language I think of as a bit negative but my skills weren’t good enough to convey the narrative in a different manner (such as the “Now I’M the king and YOU’RE the bitch!” line). Also I doubt nowadays that I would write something that some intersex people might consider inflammatory or stigmatising. But in the interests of transparency I have decided to leave it here, along with this note. If you still think I should remove it then please use the contact form.
