Becoming June

Blue-face bristles @ six o'clock,
Six-footer; latitudinous shoulders
Many condescend support; most
Femininity is a state of mind;
A way of being.
I’ve Always Been JUNE. My crescive bones
Reported thus.
Snap a pre-op photo -
Nothing changes because I own a slit;
Looks are cozen.
Some women are natural ‘jockstraps’.
Becoming June; my perennial radio station,
Who used elbow grease
To learn my birth argot?
I never have been Stan the Man -
I don’t know him.
