Corral of Condescension

There is no -ism,
no tag, no description, no
convenient short hand
arms wide enough to hold me
inside it’s embrace
and begin to capture a
scrap of my identity!

Box your meaningless
labels instead. They serve no,
true, helpful purpose.

Spare me your petty,
pejorative intention.
I decline to wear
your misused and undefined
demeaning attributions.
