To the Man I Met Yesterday

I apologize for the title
Because, though it refers to you as you choose to be,
It does not take into consideration the complexity
Of a life not lived on the edge, not measured by the boxes
But by the contents, an infinite number of definitions
Which, while better for us as humans, makes more trouble
For writers than it does for casual conversationalists
Because it is nowhere near as hard
To say “Your friend asked me to go to the store, but I
forgot what they wanted” as it is
To write a poem
“To the biologically female
physiologically transitioned, sociologically male
psychologically comfortable, spiritually
aware, fashionally uninhibited, Patriot-accented
beautiful-hearted, horror-surviving
unapologetic apologist soul
I had the pleasure of glimpsing
