Sorry 4 The Hair

I’m sorry that my hair defies your standard of beauty.
Sorry for the way my tightly coiled curls grow out of my scalp, in such a way that makes them so questionable.
I’m sorry you thought it was okay to touch
But I’m not sorry for the way I reacted.
Because your intemperate disposition does not make it okay for you to invade my personal space.
I’m sorry you are so besotted.
I’m sorry that you continue to push your ideal on me, as if I care what you think.
I’m sorry you think I am making a political statement.
I’m sorry that I do not consider my kinks a sort of illness or disease ¬†curable with creamy crack
I’m not sorry that our views on what is aesthetically pleasing are inconsistent, because you tried to strip me of my beauty,
When all I’ve done was embrace yours.
Sorry for the hair
