On being a slut

My cotton briefs sit by my lacy bra leṭte  

Ink stained fingers wear seductive reds

My hair dishevelled and lobes twice pierced

Legs pour out of the shorts stretched across my derriere

Christian faith nestled in boastful cleavage

My morals looser than my lovers by the sewage

Brought up in elite upscale high rises

 I drive downtown for my sunrises 

The thunder reigning over me

Making your structure a mockery

And yet I am a slut for nothing more

Than all these sins my sisters branded me for

All these luxuries I allowed myself

Cashed out on the moral credit I once held

This generation they call themselves new

Rebels like me the deviant few

Monogamous monotonous daughters and mothers

On your wrinkles the dark age hovers

The feminist you claimed to be

Pigs more understanding than she

Edna Mode is my spirit animal

You know about that character in the Incredibles who hates capes?! You know how she designs costumes for superheroes including the Incredible family?! Yup, thats the one I’m talking about. She is hyper, eccentric and just plain genius. She looks insane when she is passionate and probably best friend goals. From what I remember, Edna was a self made woman who is succesful in life and was a symbol of everything a woman is capable of : greatness. She is a feminist’s pride and an exeptional example of an empowered woman : the woman of tomorrow. I relate to her at most points in my life but her greatness cannot be touched and is unparalleled . From her “NO CAPES” fetish to her sophisticated command over life, everything about her is hilarious and amusing. She is like a tiny posh doll who transforms into a hyperactive chihuahua when talking of her interests.

Her “I  never look back darling, it distracts me from the past” attitude and swagger is unbelievably motivational and impressive 

I call her my spirit animal because if you know me well enough you’d know that we share the same blood. We share a crazy craving for making a difference except she actually made one, in her life and in the lives of others.

Edna is easily one of my favourite disney characters because she was a woman who saved heroes, and thats the kind of irony I aspire to have in my life.
