Hello, my name is Arhm Choi Wild.

I use they/them pronouns and I'm the author of "Cut to Bloom", a poetry collection that came out last year. I'm really excited to share torrin a. greathouse's poetry with you today.

I picked this poem to share because I want to celebrate and amplify trans and queer voices especially just talking about the very important issues around mental health. And a content warning for this poem, it talks about transphobia as well as disordered eating.
