my worst trauma
beaten out of existence
comes from the stereotypical white male
and those
that have internalized the stereotypical white male
I cannot any longer
handle
being treated as that stereotypical white male
its over
in order to heal
I need space from that projection
in order to escape the politics
to be allowed to expeirence and exhaust
my trauma in society
that is why from now on I am to be referred to as
her
black her preferably
my legal gender pronoun
is black woman
