you do not see my stripes

you believe that I

should find your attention

charming, that I should be

flattered when your eyes

glaze over and you call me

pretty,

but you do not see that when you

say you want me, it means you do not

see me,  it means you mistake my

ferocity for a

need to be tamed.
