It’s bizarre to me
how quickly pity
can turn into a deep craving.
At first it was just her skinny legs that I wanted
but soon it was their coating
I wanted those deep purple and yellow blobs
splotches of weakness
and vulnerability
and pain
Our species romanticizes delicacy
They say men did it to us,
but I think it might be the opposite.
