I Would Tell You a Secret is a collection of existential poems that explore the questions between discovery and self doubt, and what it means to be in a body that is always in transition. It navigates the very personal narrative of the author’s life, from physical transition, to growing up in dysfunction, the loss of family early in life, and the process of recovery from alcoholism and addiction. They tell their story of unlearning old narratives, and the navigation of deep grief and shame, while sitting in both despair and awe at the same time. This collection of poems mischievously dance between healing and activism, tangling personal growth and collective freedom from systemic oppression intentionally and with dependence. I Would Tell You a Secret takes the reader through this narrative in a non-linear way, seeking to not shine light on the dark spots, but to instead allow the reader to sit accompanied in the dark.
Hayden Dansky is a transgender nonbinary rural Jewish queer kid trying their best to not to be smothered by capitalism.
