Man

Man. To have genitalia
of the male species,
as the Oxford dictionary, bold
black on crisp white spits
at me.
Dick. Power, extended from
the body to form the fear
that makes predator. I
lack that force, I am
no threat.
And yet I am man,
I breathe droplets of cold ice
that can
melt. On my tongue as I
swallow.
I shadow footfall, I perform
societal norm, but
I am not you
I am me. Man.
