A Series of Short Poems

this first one is called Andrea Andrew
your name is a gift you can return if it
doesn’t fit awesome this is called
diagnosis
I suffer from unrequited self love I
love myself but I don’t love myself back
[Music]
[Applause]
and there are some definitions in the
book you know they’re shaped like
definition that I don’t really know how
to explain it
this one’s called white feminism a noun
a racism that claims it is at least
better than no feminism at all like at
least Hitler was a vegetarian like we
could actually get comfortable being the
uneaten animal in the lap of the man
making lampshades out of human skin this
is depression a verb to put on your best
outfit and feel like you are dressing a
wound this is called all the good in you
when all the good in you starts arguing
with all the bad in you about who you
really are never let the bad in you make
the better case
you
