Enticing / Only Selling

People literally be screaming

“Black Lives Matter !!”

And in the next breath

They will fat shame, body shame,

Gleefully participating in the social norm

Of fatphobia, while ignoring

It’s racist roots.

People will literally

Cancel you for being

Homophobic, transphobic

Racist, sexist,

Classist or

Any kind of bigotry

They read about on their phones

But if you dare say

“I’m fat and I exercise and

I eat healthy, I’m just

Also fat—“

They laugh and mock and

Ignore your whole life, saying you are

Anti-science,

Perpetuating white beauty standards

Perpetuating the hierarchy

To me— the only explanation is

Whatever will make your instagram

More enticing.

None of y’all are actually buying,

Only selling.
