Example text

The adult 1970’s things were sequined, shiny, and thumped to the bass. Blouses flowed, jewelry glistened, and everything was brown and deep gold. All of our parents commuted to the city. I watched the army of secretaries and mid-level management march to and from the subway. Some had ambition, and some would have never equated such a thing with a steady paycheck. Both my parents worked full-time so my dad’s father watched us every day after school; I have very simple memories of him. They appear in my mind like an old-timey telegram: Picked me up from school -(STOP)- Went for ice cream cone at Carvel -(STOP)- Went to his local bar so he could get a drink (or several) -(STOP)- We threw a Nerf football at his newspaper while he read -(STOP)- Parents came home -(STOP).

The work that needed to be done in keeping this boy inside of me was a secret project with no adult supervision. There was no architectural plan or directions on how to not be a girl without anyone noticing. From what I could tell this was a deep-cover solitary mission. How could I construct a person within a person? How to exist only in my mind with skateboards, BMX bikes, and monsters while living dolls, dresses, and fairies? I thought this as my little-girl arms dangled Barbie in hand from underneath a sundress.
