taller men as ladders
they are cleaner than us. they don’t get
that they don’t matter.
we bear the brunt. we hold them
inside of ourselves.
i bet he gets clumsy and forgets
he doesn’t capitalize the “g.”
i want to see if he is perfect
when he comes.
i kiss him so i can see
myself face to face.
I’ve put away those
I will crawl to you across this burning parking
lot of a city,
lick your body new again like my tongue
is God’s hand trying to erase and recreate the earth.
—Sierra DeMulder, “When the Apocalypse Comes,” from The Bones Below (via lifeinpoetry)
If you’re a “nice guy” to a girl up until you realize she doesn’t want to date you, then go on about how she’s a cold shrew that friendzoned you and how no girls date nice guys, like, nah mate, girls do date nice guys. You just aren’t a nice guy. You’re a passive aggressive beta with internalized misogyny and a serious victim complex.
