to fetishists (to hunters) - PED #15

By tootwofoursquare

to the man

who knows

he is an asian

fetishist but

knows less that

he is a hunter: 


when you tell

me that asian

women are 

your "thing" 


i can't even

be upset about

your sailor-moon

harajuku geisha 

hello kitty fantasy

because i'm too 

busy imagining 

you on top of me


the way hunters

pose on Bengal

tiger rugs, 

like you think

i am nothing

more than a 

skin trophy to 

display, my 

mouth an open 

invitation to pry

apart and cut into

a smile,  the emptied 

remains of a glorious

beast waiting to

be filled with glass

eyes fixated on you


unblinking

while your 

amateur taxidermist

hands push elbow deep

inside, replacing

what i know and what

i cherish with 

something meant to 

keep me immobile, 

belly down 

intended to 

ease your

hard footsteps

on a cold wood 

floor. 


you think i am

nothing

more than 

an asian to

fit your fetish.


but i am no game,

big or small 

for you to hunt and 


i am no empty 

beast waiting

to serve the pretty

purpose of 

lying down 

eyes unblinking

and face broken

to a fragile smile.


i am no 

thing.
