and by that I mean I don’t smoke cigarettes,
But if I did I’d inhale them slow and
long like I know it’s gonna
Kill me one day.
If I did smoke
I would do so with a cup of coffee
and shaking hands
like I know better.
I would smoke quietly
and not with all the others
outside the bookstore
like I’ve got something to prove to the world.
I’d always have a light and I’d never need to ask to use someone else’s.
I’d try not to wake up with the taste in my mouth,
I’d try not to make it a bad habit,
even though I want something to snuggle under
My skin and whisper “you need me, you need me.”
I love you like the surgeon general warnings:
“May cause death” (I will love you like the plague)
“Smoking causes lung cancer” (I can’t breathe without your hands on me)
I love you the way a smoker’s cough loves a sleeve.
one more sandwich story when i was six my mum made me ham sandwiches and my friend had skin that was the same colour as ham and i’d feel bad eating it because it felt like i was eating her and i’d always leave over my sandwiches and my mum asked why and i was too embarassed to tell her the real reason so i told her i was vegetarian like my dad and to make that lie consistent ive been vegetarian for the past almost 13 years

- cook for you

- be feminine
- be graceful
- be fashionable
- wear pink
- love men
- be the media’s idea of perfection

This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.
