Consent (Final draft) – Katie

28 Jan

Taught to manipulate: become a shape seen in magazines
Learn a perfect kind of face and trace unto your own
Lipstick kept within the lines, fluff of pink defines your cheeks
‘Don’t look like you’ve tried too hard. But, do try too hard.’

So perfect kind of face you trace unto your own
Deep shadows on smoky eyes, toned thighs, slim
Don’t look like you’ve tried too hard, but did try too hard
Still, it only takes one ‘alright darling’

Deep shadows on smoky eyes, toned thighs, slim
When skinny slate legs laced pavements, the green man waved too late
It only takes one ‘alright darling’
Reminded tights are poor defence against the pinch of leechy fingers

When skinny slate legs lace pavements, the green man waves too late
Calls dictate they’ll choose your fate, as though consent only a concept
Reminded tights are poor defence against the pinch of leechy fingers
And choice is sometimes chased into your stomach

Calls dictate they’ll choose your fate, as though consent only a concept
Sunday morning unsuspecting, consent concealed itself in camouflage
And choice is sometimes chased into your stomach
Bald wrinkled rat writhes out its fat red face uninvited

Sunday morning unsuspecting, consent concealed itself in camouflage
No fluff of pink, no lipstick lines, no smoky eyes, but still bait
Bald wrinkled rat writhes out its fat red face uninvited
I wonder if there’s any hope in trying to feel worth something

Then fluff of pink, then lipstick lines, smoky eyes, choice bait
Excited, I prepare for warm cheeks and the soft of my love’s gentle fingers
Yet wonder if there’s any hope in trying to feel worth something
When cries of ‘alright darling’ lie in wait
