Look At Me

April 18, 2022 12:47 PM

A little dream-pop number about being transfeminine. Written with my usual collaboratrix.

sorry I’m too masculine for you
I tasted your scorn on my lips
children don’t speak unless spoken to
so I bit out my tongue for the kids

They all seemed distressed
when you walk in the room
wearing that dress
if you caught them looking
just think of what they might do

they’re all swinging Dicks
Toms Harrys and Barbies
with perfectly smoothed-over parts

the rest of them looking
for a tall man to save them
as they sneak from their wives
in the dark

They all sound annoyed
when you have your moment
the girls and the boys
who won’t say your real name
no matter how many times you told them

Yeah you can look at me
I get it, I get it

Yeah you can look at me
I get it, I get it

The woozy music, slightly buzzed melody and the justified anger of the words are an unexpected combination that works. A moment that really stood out to me was the "Yeah, you can look at me/I get it, I get it." Thanks for this.
