Christian Coffman

Androgyny

What are you? What are you, shapely creature, to be making such noises? What sort of inflexible nature causes you to stay stiff all your life, shining yet dusty from use, manipulated with oneís hope to cultivate the rich cries that you produce?
Who would dare to use you in such a way, when they know not what you are? Your hard head of hair curves down your back, cascading and artfully-made. Your body was of a woman designed, curvy and lustrous, inspiring and convincing. Yet when you are touched by the bowed hair of a majestic mammalís mane your voice is heard to be that of a man, a tenor that would make the great classical musicians swoon before you in admiration! Through your uncertain appearance and voice comes a perfection that is definite and demanding, singing aloud, wishing that all would hear.
You cannot be called anything but androgynous; my creature made of music and sylvan remnants.
