Tw: Allusion to transphobia. I’m a trans guy, and the poem is mostly about how the “girl” identify of the past still lingers.

“Lemons and Bleach” A poem by Alexander Tucker 10/16

The traces of old façades linger here

The traces of old façades linger here As lemons and bleach in a hospital

The traces of old façades linger here As lemons and bleach in a hospital “Sanctify this unclean truth,

The traces of old façades linger here As lemons and bleach in a hospital “Sanctify this unclean truth, for our love.”

Air that’s sickly

Air that’s sickly and sweet

Air that’s sickly and sweet and poisoned.

My arachnid heart shudders in my chest

My arachnid heart shudders in my chest Anointed and sterile,

My arachnid heart shudders in my chest Anointed and sterile, empty and pure

My arachnid heart shudders in my chest Anointed and sterile, empty and pure My figure has a ransom note effect

My arachnid heart shudders in my chest Anointed and sterile, empty and pure My figure has a ransom note effect Juxtaposition in paper and words

I will molt my skin,

I will molt my skin, my body transform

I will molt my skin, my body transform But I do it alone,

I will molt my skin, my body transform But I do it alone, I do it forlorn.
