An original poem exploring the societal pressures that women face from a young age, from the moment that we are told that Pink ought to be our favorite color, from the moment that we are expected to be Silent when we experience violence, especially sexual violence. #metoo

Pink

As a girl,

you ought to like Pink—

color of baby shoes, bonnets, peonies

doll babies, baby sitter’s lipstick, proper thongs.

As a girl,

you ought to like Pink—

taste of plastic sippy cups, strawberry lip smackers, cotton candy, watermelon slushees, babysitter’s lipstick, lollipop, proper lick of your boyfriend’s cock.

As a girl,

you ought to like

Pink,

derives from Red,

They say,

Passion, never

Violence—

color of blood rushing in your veins, out of your head, rimmed ‘round the space you never talked about with anyone,

except your babysitter,

of course,

when you helped her clean the

Red

off her clothes and combed

from her hair

White.

Derives Pink

From

Passion, never

Cock

Violence

No.
