Looking Down on Ourselfs

let’s criminalize ‘prettiness’
scar ourselves with sharp rocks
compliments are insults

bathing is unnecessary
ugly animals all
fat and filthy
reeking foulness
rubbing mud in our hair
and throwing our shit at each other

gouge out our perceptions
with long dirty fingernails
Is this the best we can do?
