Contagious

More than being trans

More than being gay

More than being lesbian

More than being broke

People have the hardest time

Accepting that I’m fat

And that I shouldn’t have to change that

In order to be respected, in fact

It’s embarrassing for the folks

Who are more afraid of my fat

Than they are their own demons

As if I am somehow

A living breathing representation

Of their demons.

Y’all are like

“Covid is so lonely!!!”

Try being me for an

Afternoon and see how you feel

About fat people

And how contagious they are —

Mind, body and soul.

I’m the only one

Trying to cure myself,

Out here in this ableist hellhole.
