Until The Cows Come Home - PDF

"Until The Cows Come Home" is small collection of poems centering around the transformative nature of self discovery and survival as a trans person in the world. The writing is autobiographical, and the narratives are skewed by trauma or envelop trauma as a means to go on.


"My doctor tells me that taking hormones

is described as a second puberty,

and I don’t say that I hope I’ll be taller this time.

Don’t say how I hope my skin will be a delicate thing

a poisonous flower, call me by my other names,

call me wisteria, foxglove, rhododendron.

If the world is trying to consume me whole

than it should be prepared to feel

death in it’s body live a good harvest."

- A Poisonous Thing

48 pages, 16 poems, measuring 4.25"x7", perfect bound with a silk laminate cover.
