A Body in Awe of Power

A Body in Awe of Power

It’s so damn hot that it pants in the AC

Not that I have one

But I’ve been siphoning my roommates, which has kept the sweat at bay

He bought it because he got a designer service dog: Pomeranian and Husky mix

Artificial insemination is amazing

Science is amazing

And powerful

Like a gun is

Like money is

Like beauty is

I don’t know how to use beauty

But I do know how to use my whiteness

My masculinity

My gentile features

I assume it’s the same idea

I think about my gentile mother; one new message

Around to chat? 

I think about my pint of ice cream melting on my desk

My body naturally does what I don’t want

Burn in daylight

Keep me safe at night

Left me without culture

I assume it’s the same for everyone
