By selfishness, I look out of love By selfishness, I do not turn my face away When struck or beaten.
Forever muzzled at all times Torn to shreds and tamed I swallow every sharp word that lands on my tongue
Because that is what my body had always stood for
By selfishness, I choose to not place my genes in that cauldron of motherhood Because I do not see any hybrids And I see no future
But that doesn't matter because that is what my body must stand for
Because as far as glossaries go, I am nothing but a definition Another broken gear in a machine
Unwelcoming bodies are selfish They are greedy and rapacious
Because I'm obviously bound to get lonely in a big empty house Nothing but a dusty unappealing front door Locked and sealed with my own expectations
No invitations, no welcome mats, nothing but an empty front porch What good is a house if not for its owner Reckless, abandoned
A good for nothing home
A Useless pile of wood
A useless batch of space
A useless heap of flesh
A useless woman
A good for nothing useless woman...
