The Female Genius

Eyelash enhancers
Padded bras
high heels
lace fronts
you can have my
sweat glands
I don’t like the stains
on my silk shirts
when I go out
of town
I must be
in my size 8s
hunger is optional
when I eat
I must have
only four carrots
save my banana
for after my 10-mile
run
I don’t get my period
anymore
but
I sure am
sexy in this
g-string
Betty White
is not a
bitch
because she
knows it
and
panty hose
in the winter
time?
just ignore the cold
seeping into your
hip house
babies find a way
with no help
from me
line my lips
right
eye shadow for the shade
from the humungous
hat
I wore
to church
stuck in the doorway
but I heard
the sermon
speak right to me
because I’m saaaaaved
from myself
under
this
forgetting
this
to get off the corner
of my mind
and into the vicinity
where people could relate to
me before the
limitless
nail polish
colors
made me
apparent
to
idiots
who
don’t know how
or when
to protect
the female
genius
books
are bought
and sold
and I read
them
all
at 6am
in a coffee shop
underneath
my fake hijab
I smile at no one
linger
not even
long enough
to leave any
understanding
always knowing
that
no one can tell
me
who I am
what I should do
how I should look
where I should go
when I should stop
why I can’t be
everything
