    what is this
    neatness that people
    seem to obsess
    over?

    being made to follow
    straight lines of
    discipline, for
    going to a place to
    celebrate freedom!
    what is this
    neatness, what is this order?

    reluctant faces wear it;
    like kids burdened
    with summer
    homework;
    like victorian women
    fitted into
    stifling corsets
    to please men
    who knew nothing
    about them.

    what is this
    obsession?
    when i want you
    sans the scent
    of the cloak of
    acceptance.

    what is this
    obsession?
    when i want you
    as the drunk man
    wants Paris
    on a chilly winter
    night.
