I want a man who sympathizes with the plight of women one who embraces the scars that are made to please him one who dedicates his time to learning

about the intricacies of a woman’s body

not solemnly for his pleasure

i want a man who touches inequity

in the cracks where the dust of victims lay

i want a man who curses the systematic racism that lingers around when i am in suburban stores

i want a man who loves regardless of sexual orientation regardless of the composition of my face in the morning one who is passionate about our world

and the ecosystem of the two of us
