Bleach Blonde by Teresa Brickey

CW: mention of rape







Boxed hair dye,

bimbo,

Cure this broken heart.


I am Tonya Harding,

Call me white trash and

I will spit in your goddamn milk.


Now, in bed, I lay alone,

Where you used to be.

Lol, how mf sad.


When I was five,

I dressed up as Medusa For Halloween.

She was raped, too.


At Disney World,

Gut me, from the inside out and outside in,

I will call you my Pinocchio, baby.


When it rains, let it pour

All the way down my throat,

Until I don’t think about you anymore.
