outbreak

i like women’s bodies

our stomachs

expand with too

much diet. our

breasts swell with

firmness and stability

during bleedings.

our minds are sharp and ever-expanding.

our hips sway with

intuition.

we play songs

with their hair, or flair,

or fringe.

we dance with their

emotions.

we study their

minds.

we relive joy

and relish in pain.

we collaborate.

we are maternal.

we breed security. 

we foster empathy.

 

i like being woman.

 

how can i bring

my femme being

to your thoughts,

bones,

cerebral swims

 

without

being 

 

overbearing

drama-centric

bossy

bitch

 

can you not see

femininity leaks

ripe with transparency

 

good communication

boundaries

hard work
