A new poem

Literally just finished this one:

you think my gender is written on my body
a text for you to read
but you’re wrong
it’s written deep inside
somewhere in walnut curves and sparking neurons
and merely displayed on my body
a work of art
subject to interpretation

what you see may not be what you get
and that is not my problem
but yours
for failing to understand
that this is more complicated than x and y
m and f
a curve not a point

people are always more complex than you think
