Fight me, bite me

Thursday 26 July 2018 / poetry

Fighting anti-trans lesbians
Pretending we hate them
Projecting their transphobia thus
When really they hate us

Moving in herds
Anti-trans sheep
Into our spaces they creep
To claim we threaten theirs

They bend our words
Transform and twist
Wording bent
Selective quotation

Fight me
Bite me
I know you'll never like me

But I love me
I love my trans siblings
I love all the radical non-conformists changing the world
With visions of a boundless euphoric utopia
Today we've gotta cope with ya... transphobia
But one day it will be our... cornucopia
