The Only Useful Thing a Woman Does…

images

All oppression creates a state of war.”
-Simone de Beauvoir

Remember to be pretty
During sunsets,
During sex. Remember to be pretty.
Be pretty for him. Be as pretty as pornography
For him. Be as pretty as capitalism
For him. Be as pretty as profits
For him. Be as pretty as ism
For him.

For knees buckle,
Facilitating absurd dangles
And flailing limbs beating air
With flesh-tones. This motion
Self-aligns with sneering abs
Wincing at the context
Of truthful gestures. Inch by minute
Every happy ending incorporates a love story
And fucking. Happiness cannot be found alone-
Every happy ending incorporates a love story
And indistinct shouting
Followed by gasps
And bedlam. Every happy ending is a love story
So remember to be pretty.
Be pretty for him.
