Dirt

All this pride and

No respect.

Just shared a meme that

Said that.

Never seen something

So straightforward

That gave me so many feelings

Like I’d been understood

I can’t be proud of my identity

While also being shamed for it

I also can’t be confidently queer

In a world where your queerness

Is measured by your sex appeal

Your wallet, your literal net worth

It doesn’t mean anything to be

To be proud of who I am

If I’m always being treated like

Dirt.
