Mosaic

< Back


She sat in front of me and told me I'd sold myself.

I, confusedly answered

“But I'm still here…”

And she just ignored me

as though I wasn't.

Right now I am writing words that map out my life journey

story songs that sing sounds of pain, love and anger.

I will tell those words to you

Is this selling myself too?

It seems that sex is all you see

well then i think you see me in 2D

because the actual reality

is mosaic blur, a tapestry

I'm fingers teeth and flesh and bone

I fight for rights to walk safe home

I'm a screaming mess with a casual lean

I'm lonely, loved and in-between

My arms are nurture, loving ease

and forcing clients onto their knees

I don't fit what you think of me

not he or she

not forced – just – be.

if you can't see me for more than sex

Can't see I that I deserve respect

Don't like my work or understand

My safety shouldn't be in your hands

Put aside your gallantry

It's time for a new strategy

Stop sadly singing my elegy

Radical notion: listen to me?
