The Mirror

Based on ads I get for cis folk

Therapy is

Closing your eyes—

Meditating —

Eating smoothies

Taking selfies.

Based on ads I get for queer folk

Therapy is

Hormones—

Surgery—

Sexual Wellness—

Taking selfies.

Based on ads I get for fat folks

Therapy is

Dieting—

Exercise—

Nutrition(…dieting.)—

And finally—

Taking selfies.

Folks let’s maybe acknowledge that

Mental health can’t be

Photographed or stereotyped or

Ridiculed into whatever easy

Ad format the marketing committee liked.

Maybe if we want to tackle

The country’s mental health problem

We should acknowledge the mirror

We’re all staring at.
