don’t ask me why I don’t wear bras
let’s talk about you:
why do you let yourself be turned into a present?
smoothed and dusted {over and over} like the working table of an OCD chef
as if all your bruises and fears and idiosyncrasies are residues to be swept into the bin
placed into a box–bigger boxes even trick the recipient {yes, trick. they do not think you are enough}
& tied fancifully at the end
finishing touches / “My single daughter is a fantastic cook, a graduate and she loves to clean”
unable to be free till the owner comes for his package
i let my nipples kiss my outfits
and breasts jump towards all directions
because unlike you,
i resist all forms of imprisonment.
