Tell Me I May Belong Where I Say I Must

in My mustache, will I be shunned by You?
Your lips, Your lips, Your lips, are My lips too!
Problematic Innuendo, i know.
but My argument can not be made here
without treading on Toes and Tongues, i fear.
apologies, apologies, to You.
so what are the Rites, and what are My Rights;
do You not know Your Fights are, too, My Fights?
Altruistic Feminism, Guide You.
I am Bleeding, I am Scarring for this;
This New Flesh is but Venus with a Fist.
