Gayle hashtags
free the nipple
as a reclaiming of self and space
of unjudged bodies for all people

In the basement of time, Dave finds elation
thrills himself, unable to understand
the seeming contradiction

He has never seen female skin
as the surface upon which
revolutions can begin

We have lost him to the endless sale
we may yet win his sons
and raise them to the power of Gayle


Misunderstanding Change first appeared in the Monsoon 2021 Edition of Almost Island.
