An Intrinsic Exquisite


I open my eyes and find myself with other eyes and, as people do, we are conversing

if we aren't - if we are, say, dancing, or swimming or anything physical, nothing like this happens at all

but if we are conversing I become so dark and menacing, cutting through and then I feel guilty and take that sword and thrash myself unconscious

take her legs away
take her mind and heart away
the creature has too much power

women shouldn't speak like this

women can't behave like this

you aren't even behaving like a man

you are taking this brain/heart thing WAY too far



like a man
