dismission

wonder what makes you
so in-demand
upper-hand
understand, we:
soft and pliable
beneath you and quiet
someday you should try it
my knuckles twist aching
to drag you down
down here below
where you put us
wonder what makes us
addicted to you, smug
and dismissive
throaty, derisive
would have preferred you
submissive as us
face of benevolence
mouth yet prevalent
it must be wonderful
knowing it all
would have preferred you
sealed
would have liked you
to feel
what you do
to us
i would very much like you
to feel how we do
unloved
still we seek your permission
offered only dismission
would have preferred you
to care

validation yet to be earned
god when will we
when will we
learn
