a list of things i am not:

an analogy;
no shitty ocean metaphors,
no poems about lovers and bones.
no girl with high school insecurities,
no misinterpreted radiohead lyrics
on the sidebar of a fifteen-year-old's blog.

a tea drinker, a book reader, a dreamer.

the rain;
no dew drops of a saddened world
splashing on tin roofs or windowpanes.
no drawn out similes for depression or loss.

an ableist slur for the diagnosis of a mental illness,
starting with c and ending with y.

a lesbian. people are not their haircuts
or who they fall in love with.

no razored wrists and thighs.
no sick doggish romance.
no supermodel teen queen.
no irresistible object of sex and desire.
no poetess, no goddess,
but no less
than strengths and fallacies.
i am nineteen years old, and i am allowed to be tired

title is obviously not mine and part of the song imagine by john lennon, but more-so that part in dinner for schmucks

"you may say i'm a dreamer, but i'm not."
"...the only one."
"the only one what?"

i dont like list poetry much but this ties itself together wonderfully. stereotypes are a bitch to live with. assumptions should be illegal, especially ones based on appearance.

I fully concede that I have a thing for list poetry, and this is no exception. But along with those things you’re not, or you think you’re not, there are things you are – like alive. And beautiful. Oh so beautiful.
