Every Man Wants to Insert Himself by Bina Perino

*From Issue One: Royalty

like a phallic gun to my head,
suggesting, ​do this, buy that, spend time here,
don’t go there, avoid them, talk to me;

as he fingers pieces of my mind,
demanding, ​not good enough, change that,
this won’t do, I know best, not right;

like tight bondage around my heart,
whispering, ​I am here, I helped you,
be grateful, I complete you, you owe me;

so I will make myself impenetrable
