‘I catch myself’ by Heni Tinker

Text that reads: 'I catch myself / As I oscillate between binaries / I try to reform my tissue / As I clutch shame pressed to'
Text reading: 'iron cortex my body holds me / As I cling encircling ivy / I become a site marking gender'
Text reading: As I turn over the fine print / sections where I intersect / As I falter regurgitating diagnostics'
Text reading: 'always ready nature nurture / As I return unsung love songs to myself to manifestations of body'
