The Misdirection of My Generation

As an offering of flattery
He told me men want to fuck me
Like I should have blushed and said ‘thank you’
Like that’s all I’m good for
When did that become a replacement
For intelligent? For beautiful?

When I left him
He told me I was too complicated anyway
When did that become a way to describe
A woman with self-respect?
