meanwhile, in the bathroom

It’s just you and me now, girl

yeah, I see you for what you are

fix your face

laugh louder

make your beauty believable

or try

try harder

get that femme-confidence thing just right

get that not taking shit thing just right

get that self love thing just right

I see you

run your fingers through your hair

flip it again

I see you

touch your face

doubt

wipe your eyeliner

inspect

push red into your lips

adjust

adjust

keep fixing

like your hands be God

creating you

again

like this mirror is here

to remind you

you’ll never be like them

like

even still

this stall can birth you back

better
