Selling confidence

are you found
lacking, or
think you are?
if so, we’ve got
something for
you.
act now,
before you
think delay.
buyers swear
by it,
on it
and even
to it.
just make one
easy payment,
ten times,
to fill a space
you didn’t
know existed.
luckily,
we designed
a  solution to
a problem we
may have created.
we are not liable
for any damages,
physical or mental,
because, let’s face it,
it’s made in
China.

No alpha, nor feminist

masculinity,
what does that
mean to me?
embarrassment.
being a male actually
makes me afraid
and doubtful.
portrayal of “alpha male”
tendencies, coupled with
the fear that males
are inherently dangerous
to a woman’s safety
makes me reluctant
to consort with women.
why?
i’ve heard stories,
from female classmates,
who have been harassed
by perverse males
while traveling by bus.
apparently they are
unaware of unwarranted
discomfort.
i’ve never considered anyone below me,
in fact, quite the opposite.
but with this new found insight,
i’ve taken a further step back
when dealing with women,
knowing that any good
intentioned act i attempt,
could be misconstrued
as a negative.
thus, i must guard myself
from misconception
because those before me
perpetuate an ideal
that holds no value.

Drawing lines of crooked writting

i find it easier to write lines
rather than draw lines.
mind you,
one can write lines drawn.
being uneducated in the proper
use of language for expression,
i don’t take this seriously,
thus, i don’t sweat the mistakes.
being formally taught how to draw
a “proper” line
makes me anxious about
the possibility of mistake.
i shouldn’t worry, it’s true.
we all are trying to draw straight lines
with these slants that support our head.
