Brittney Tang



you’re the monster we all used to fear as children. 

when i was alone,

you appeared on the edge of my bed.

instead of fearing you,

i kissed you.



tool of the human being, 

cut away my past, please.

cut the hair that has saddened me.

change me.

cut me.

shape me.




wear your best linens, angel. 

you must be pure,

for everyone to love you

wear your best linens, angel.

you must prosper in the softest of clothing.

you must compete for love.
