we don't talk about fashion because we're victims of it, we talk about
fashion because it gives us power. we wear steel cages around our hearts to
protect us against love we cannot control. we wear steel-toed shoes every
day. we wear stripes to distract them and polka-dots to attract
them. we wear spats and straps and roses behind our ears as lures for the
weaker ones, then we tear them away. the ones we can only wash with like colors
and cool water. we don't talk about it because we have to, we talk about
it because we can.
