Pretty

A set of haikus


fuck pretty, fuck that
aesthetic jail cell, fuck that
Polaroid Pretty


fuck pretty, fuck that
forced Magazine smile, fuck that
Commercial Pretty


fuck pretty, fuck that
advertised face cream, fuck that
Expensive Pretty

fuck pretty, fuck that
scrutinized body, fuck that
Controlling Pretty

fuck pretty, fuck that
mutilated hair, fuck that
White-Centric Pretty

fuck pretty, fuck that
endless worrying, fuck that
Insecure Pretty


fuck pretty, fuck that
manufactured worth, fuck that
Man’s Choice Pretty


fuck pretty. We’re done
We’re done downplaying our hurt.
We’re done being small.


We need our bodies.
We need our love more than you.
We deserve our strength.

Fuck Pretty. We are
not here for your enjoyment.
We are for our joy.
