It’s Kind of Funny, How Shaving Started as This Thing That Was All for Female Liberation and Freedom

Raised little mounds

March along my thighs, marking the graves of screaming hair follicles:

The casualties of

Painstaking

And Surely Righteous

Genocide.

 

 

(See,

I’m not the only one

And

I’m doing it because the tan, gleaming girls on TV told me to

Because if I did this

I’d be

Good and

Wanted

too.

Because nobody wants to be associated with

Impurity.)

[And when my best friend wears shorts,

And because they are an affirmed pacifist,

They find themself confronted by

Nationalists.

And

Patriots.

And

Soldiers.

Who stop them,

Glare,

And demand why              hasn’t yet joined the

War

Effort.]
