Be a new man

Headlines and politicians like this are why one part of me is itching to get out of this state. Poems and poets like this are why the better half still stays.

Police and Community Safety Minister Jack Dempsey is considering a plan to force jailed members of gangs to wear fluoro pink prison uniforms – Courier Mail 21 October 2013

——

when I am a man, the man demanding
running the world
girls girls
I will only wear pink
wrapped in skin and flesh firstly
tender as cotton candy and dewy
as a cherry blossom
trodden down in some Yoshino park, muddied and bruised in the dirt
or ruined rose like a Nazi-branded queer
fragrant as a bubblegum-infused My Little Pony
sunrise or sunset, sickly as Strawberry Shortcake
humble as a blush
flagrant as an open vagina
