I believe that
one day we will live in a house
with a room made entirely of pillows
and I will swim to you through the downy fluff
your body a campfire next to mine
and I’ll warm my hands in the fire
for the rest of time
saying feminism is unnecessary because you don’t feel oppressed is like saying fire extinguishers are unnecessary because your house isn’t on fire
im not crying there’s just overpriced college education in my eye
I look forward to the day when new vocabulary is created so that we can effectively communicate who we are, and how we see ourselves, in terms of gender identity, pronouns, etc. Repurposing words from the current vernacular to identify or define a new idea, or expression of self, just doesn’t work for me.
Until then, just call me KAI.
