Natasha Dennerstein's Seahorse
This lyrical, slim volume will resonate with those who grew up feeling like they didn’t belong, in a world where the authentic self is denied in order to survive. The poet captures her transformation, tracing her journey from the small boy who was “too sensitive,” and doesn’t quite fit, to her transition as a young trans girl, finally “limping her way to womanhood.” Leaving behind the child who was “all the time scared,” she becomes herself, “scared no longer.” Often in the telling the language sings. Recalling her experience with a lover, the poet writes “Lime willow fronds shimmer apricot gold in the dappled sunlight and all sounds are muffled…We frolicked around in our co-dependent mauve pool together like seahorses, tails locked, twirling around an underwater plant.” Reading through these poems is like embarking on a heroine’s journey with the poet, descending into the underworld and emerging into the light.
