Haikus on the Trans Day of Visibility

Haiku for my trans brothers and sisters:
Hey look we did it
Defying stupid ideas
About gender norms.

Haiku for the Mythical Norm:
Normalcy is false
Just another way to use
Power over you.

Haiku for Cis Allies:
You are doing
An okay job but for real
Could be much better.

Haiku for the Butt Hurt:
It’s not about you
Or your fragile feelings.
People are dying.

Haiku for my Non-Binary Peeps:
Take dualities
And put them in a smoothie
Watch them disappear.

Haiku for fallen Trans Women of Color:
You were beautiful
Brilliant light in a dark world.
Please rest in power.
