Inspiration Porn

I’m not your inspiration porn

For you to sensationalize

As your source of motivation

For your more abled-bodied lives,

 

Not your inspiration

Or measure of your skill,

A Paralympian

Nor life uncured to kill,

 

I’m not your porn,

Objectified

For you to own

Or criticize,

 

Not your

Provocation

Your stimulus or spur;

I’m not your inspiration porn.

      Thank-you, it’s one of my angry ones, but hey. I seem to get on well with zanze form; I like the way an idea or word is unwrapped like layers of onion skin. 🙂

        I like to use and play with different styles, to work within restrictions then, another time, to break all the rules!
