~yr various hairlessnesses~ started as a project in 2014 when i came out as a trans woman & decided i wanted to start trying to transition. i decided my first step was going to be laser hair removal on my face & that to fund it (i am always broke) i was going to sell poems for ten dollars. each poem would be a letter poem to either the person who donated the money or to the name or words or concept that person wanted me to write the poem to. i ended up writing a total of almost fifty of these. what you see in this chapbook are the 17 poems i still like, today, in november 2015, plus one poem called dear hairless problem that I wrote for myself.
this chapbook is dedicated to all the people who paid me money & then i didn't write them a poem. i am sorry. i want to write you a poem still but my brain stopped letting me write these at some point. i want to pay you back, but i spent all that money on hair removal & i still need more hair removal. i hope you forgive me. i don't ever have extra money. this was a bad idea for a fundraiser. i am also sorry for anyone who i wrote a poem for & then i didn't end up putting it in this chapbook. if you were excited to see your poem in here & it's not, i'm sorry.
