the reason why in the trunk-bed of his SUV, his hot breath on my breasts, I left

my body and entered the roof, praying

to God for death;

3. Devoid of sexuality;

boring to boys my own age; or me throughout most of my life;

4. Neither male nor female;

or

I just wanted to be a person;

or

unreal;

or

the source of confusion and nausea

that night when he pressed

his half-hard crotch

against my ass—

When did I become a woman?

Why do I ask if I’m gray-ace when I know I’m gray-ace

Why do I ask if I’m gray-ace when I know I’m gray-ace
