may my brows be a fence against:

-brown girl with a complicated immigration status anxiety

-life outside whiteness

-parasitic rage

-all the departures of all the loved ones

-ptsdiva nightmares that make my days

-federal reserve notes and all the space they take up

-ableist and racist constructions of time

-all the places/spaces/hearts in which i am always ‘too much’

-the everyday lie of scarcity

-the myth that my femme is created upon the destruction of another’s

-all the prescriptions

-your gaze

-and all the $1 gold superhoop earings that tarnish before i can get 3 divine wears out of them
