The voice of yr beloved—a thing so close it is already half in yr head.

Launched from those lips u love to kiss: yr lover’s voice flows into yr ears and alights upon yr skin and flutters gently there, like yr lover’s fingers running up and down yr body, warming the oxygen rich, spring soil of yr heart.

No wonder when I asked an ex girlfriend who’s subsequent girlfriend had a sex change and now lives as a fully legally recognized male American citizen—what was the craziest part of the transition? Was it a change in a particular body part—a specific addition or a reduction that took the most getting used to?

My ex-girlfriend answered without hesitation:

“It was when his voice changed,” she said.
