It was in her face

You sneer your pejoratives
like they are a bad thing
like they are something
I didn’t already know
i hand’t come to terms with
decades ago
you sneer them
and you mean them
internalize them
I promise
it doesn’t rub off
not catching
not even close
beneath contempt
yeah, probably
but if you are the alternative
I would just as soon
be me
