dismission

wonder what makes you
so in-demand
upper-hand, please
understand, we:
soft-compliant
beneath-you and quiet,
would have preferred you
submissive as us
someday you should try being
down
where you put us
wonder what makes us
addicted to you: smug
and dismissive
throaty, derisive
must be wonderful
knowing it all
face of benevolence
mouth yet prevalent
would have preferred you
sealed
would have liked you
to feel
what you do
to us,
would love 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
