POEM: Untouchable

This poem reflects on the divide between masculine and feminine ways of being in the world. One of the most stark examples is “incels” who are involuntarily celibate, often because they have a palpable misogyny that women find unattractive. The irony is that the universal need to connect with other human beings is often self-sabotaged by hypermasculinity.


He would have killed
For a tender touch
Whoa fully
For this very aim
He missed what
He coveted most
