Lost Girls

"Let's ordain Wendy as an honorary Boy."

"Honorary Boy!" the throng cried.

The unanimous cheering caught me off guard.
A bubble of nausea made its way up my
throat and I succumbed to a hiccup. For
there it was, a small voice inside me wondering,
If I was being accepted for who I was, why
did I have to become a boy in the process?

--"The Lost Girls" by Laurie Fox
