'I’m just an angry zealot / A heathen in the house of allies / It’s lonely in Heteroland'

Hey tourist
Why are you watching my struggle
Is this on your access pass
Will you ever stop appropriating
I do not give you my words
I do not give you my colours
Tourist, fucking tourist,
You do not have permission
Not all things are for you
Just carry on breeding
And taking space up freely
And patronising your friends

Ignore me
I’m just an angry zealot
A heathen in the house of allies
It’s lonely in Heteroland
Taking up so much space
And being so little
You’re doing your best
And it doesn’t affect you at all
I can’t be grateful for those
Treats you baked one time
Or that meme you shared
And I have no interest in Queer Eye
Because no one is entitled
To our true superiority

Hey tourist
I think I might just hate you
Even when we eat pizza together
I’ll be there on your wedding day
With bouquets and a machete
Guess what I’ll throw first
And when I babysit your spawn
I’ll whisper hatred in its ear
Tell homo-horror at bedtime
That’s my gay agenda
Colour coded in irony more pink
Than you can sink your teeth into

Listen up
You have arrived at the epicentre
The closet door is Chernobyl
You are immune to radiation
The rest of us dying slow deaths
In a quicksand amphitheatre
Exhibits in a torture museum
And corpses strewn about
Ravaged foreign landscapes
Pornographic agony on a loop
Your circus sideshow endless genocide
Enjoy yourself fucking gawking
Tourist haunting my world,
I am an exile in yours.
