I wrote this piece because I listened to Lion by (G)I-DLE on repeat so. Here it is I guess. Feedback is appreciated!

12
she grabs the world by the wrists and surrounds herself with sharp things
she bloodies the creases of her eyelids and makes herself a crown out of childhood dreams,
links tongues over runny asphalt and night air. this world is cruel but she is crueller, 
and trust me she takes pride in that.
she doesn’t care what you call her as long as you put miss in front of it-

there are slivers of her skin tied around prison bars
fire as rebirth
and the uttering of mother tongue under the breath to summon.
careful braiding of rice into the bases of braids:
the only name she answers to.
