Man

What makes a man
Non binary
Is it his dress
or
How she dresses
Is it his hair
And makeup
Or just too much chapstick
Used to be gay
To wear pink
To play with barbies
To be a bottom
Now its female
Why cant you just be male
And like those things
Sure
You can
Pure
BS
Gender is societal
Plain and simple
Male-ness
Still a small box
No box
Somethings amiss
Whats the difference
Between a man
And
A lesbian with a penis
You laugh
And I cry
Is it how I dress
Is it my hair
Is it in the bedroom
Or is it just a feeling
A feeling of me
There’s no set rules
Never should have been
Arbitrary
Gender is a spectrum
Gender doesn’t exist
And yet it persists
In the narratives of today
Cant get them away
And be free
