hate is a right?

These people that you hate.
They are someone’s child
Someone’s parent
a brother or a sister
someone’s bestest friend
don’t you see
that they are simply living
their very best lives
trying like you
to get day to day by
no one asks
cares
gives a tinker’s damn
what you do inside your own home
you’re not beaten
harassed
bullied
made to question
your worth
or maybe you are
and you’re simply passing on
the hate foisted on to you
for what reason
so you understand
that pain is okay
hate is okay
hurting someone is okay
simply because they are different from you
everyone is different
no one is same and same and same
why
in a world
of decisiveness
can’t we just
let it be

love lies sleeping
companionable silence

“Lady’s” room

Yes

Your ass

Bouncing rhythmically in the mirror

Repeatedly

Look

Bounce

Adjust

Look

Bounce again

Your ass

Is delightful I’m sure

You shit

Strewn

Bag on bag on bag

Across three sinks

Makeup spilling everywhere

Perfume

Gaggy cloying

Sickeningly sweet

Pardon me

While I vomit

Retching

Dry heaves

The smell overpowering

Private domain

Public bathroom

Annoyance seethes

My audacity to Dane

To wash my hands

The only empty sink

Go back to twerking

You ass

I’m sure

Delights
