Poetry Monday: Whiskers

I grow a beard
Because I like how
It makes my face look

I keep it trimmed
And short
And use scented beard oil
To moisturize the skin
And condition the hair

I do it so
I like my face
And like myself

If you don’t
Like my face
Stop looking at me

Poetry Monday: The Friend Zone is a Construct of the Male Ego

The concept of the “Friend Zone” is stupid
Men created the idea to justify wanting sex
Without saying they only want sex
I’ve never heard a woman say she got “Friend Zoned”
The guys who talk about the “Friend Zone”
Would be rapists if rape was legal
It happens sometimes
You like someone, and they don’t like you
But want to be friends
Your ego is preventing you
From having a happy, healthy relationship
With the person you claimed “Friend Zoned” you
Do you complain about not getting to fuck your guy friends?
No, because you actually consider them friends
Stop objectifying women and appreciate the friendship
