Bleached Hoodrat


greyish blue eyes

lashes lusciously thick

coquettish nose

coupled with Angelina Jolie lips

kardashian-sized ass

buttery cinnamony skin

bone-straight hair

sashaying provocatively through the wind

tender voice

bubbly personality

sveltely thin due to my veganism

sipping daily on moscatos and gin

intoxicatingly sweet

downright giddish

hopping on million-dollar jets

paris on weekends

summers in st. barts

sexting on luxurious yachts

collecting red bottoms as a main hobby

washing dishes in gucci tops

golden retrievers sporting ruffled fendi rumps

is everything i’m always not


pest like in nature, scales of social justice not in her favor

first time i visited her house wanted to make it my last

but something about her demeanor makes up what she lacks in class

wonder if she’s like the others just wanting to have someone’s baby

never understanding a slew of unplanned conceptions doesn’t make her a lady

bleaching her skin trying to erase her true essence

pungent odor of malaysian weave is all that you smell in her presence

i want to educate, love and nurture

but i’ll save myself the headache and stop our romance from going any further


let me be your constant muse

i swear

see–pinky promise

that i will find a way to be your everything

i simply want to make you whole and for all your ambitions–i’ll never tame them
