The world is
Blank faced mannequins with no mouths,
so they can’t speak…
Voiceless, I wonder if they scream inside.
with generic breasts,
all the same shape and size.
They want to fit me to this mold,
to make me become
blank and plastic,
but they will never silence me…
for I know how to scream out loud!
