He(a)r Us

Something inside my ears is changing the words.
I cannot believe the things that I hear.
As a solution I try to read lips,
but they are too fast.
When I reach them,
I can not believe what they’re saying.
Dramatic? Hysterical? Crazy?
Synonymous the virility of the one who desire;
discretion, dedication and beauty.
Here,
the ideal woman,
It is from house and capital.
In this patriarchal culture
there is only one way,
woman is an object
on duty of libido.
Faced with this social catalog,
my senses are confused.
Damned myopia!
It doesn’t let me see
that for this dialogue,
it has no solution.
What is left for now
is to decolonize.
