Get Your Poem On 39/ Forbidden



There’s something about the forbidden:

I used to be glad to have no plans and just be at home

But now that we are supposed to stay home

I want to go out.

Tell me not to touch my face

And it’ll be sure to itch.

As a teen, sex was forbidden

And was all I could think about.

About Mindy Matijasevic
