Wear what you want.
Realize that that is beginning to become an overused expression
and smile about the fact.
Shop in the men’s section, letting your fingertips run over
sleeve after sleeve of lithe material.
It is so simple.
Splurge and allow your skin to experience what was defined
as a male piece of clothing to embody your figure.
Illustrate your nonchalant attitude
to the distaste you see in passerbys.
That is all they are and all they will remain.
When your brother asks about the consistency in your recent clothing
choices, how they all reflect items in a
wardrobe he owns,
tell him about the privilege he possesses
of never having to explain himself.
The temperature is rising and it is nothing less than
to venture into your comfort zone
even if it makes others uncomfortable.
