Cisgender Peak by Charl Landsberg

Charl Landsberg | May 23rd, 2021 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

My body has suffered tears and breaks.
– bled and bruised. Pangs and aches.
Violence sieged on my flesh by hands like yours,
and I still stand in despite the odds.
But you, you, little cis boy with ‘opinions’ so big,
when told not to further a transphobic cause,
you roll around in the shit like a wounded pig,
– as if struck from on high by the gods.

And you call me weak?
