safe word is strong
they tell you to pick a word
you wouldn’t normally use
but how strong
is your safe word
when you never use it
how strong am i.
safe word is avocado
but that sounds too masculine
today is the day i wake up in bed
and decide i am a girl
but needing some evidence to back this up
i feel for my genitals
beneath my boy’s boxer shorts
and am not convinced
safe word is hyacinth
dammit, someone picked that one already.
[this is a poem about my genitals.
you just don’t know it.]
safe word is ‘fifty shades of robert pattinson’s beautiful chiseled face beneath a full moon right before he is about to kiss me’
i’d rather just have you hurt me instead.
today i am a beautiful boy who is only pretending to be a girl.
i press myself up against you and you feel something,
you’re pretty sure,
but you’re not. quite. sure.
safe word is stop
but i don’t want you to stop.
safe word is no
no no no
(yes yes yes)
safe word is yes,
the unsafest safe word of them all.
safe word is just a word.
you’re never really safe.
i don’t know today who or what
there’s nothing safe about that.
some girls wear dresses and feel (oh i hate the word) girly.
i wear a dress and i feel like an imposter.
so i choose words closest to my heart
i choose words like different
and sliding scale.
and then my words are smiles have no gender
