hands

i looked down at my calloused hands

and all i heard was

women shouldn’t have…

my ears felt stuffed

my heart sank into my chest

while hearing those words

“women shouldn’t” 

alongside one another

as if they were created to be together

to be the bane of every woman’s

mere existence

as if my calloused hands

would be the end of

mine.
