Work in progress

There is an easier way to say this

Like i could just write the point down or say something loosely about female expectations

 

sort of slide it into conversation where appropriate

 

Like we're sat at the table and i'm like could you pass me the jug of water please, i've ran out

And funny you should say that because to be a woman is to enter into a constant state of incompleteness

as we strive for what fundementally cannot be achieved

 

in any sense

 

And then i'll sip the rest of my drink, place the glass down on the coaster

Maybe cover myself in a trifle if there's one to hand

see how i'm feeling at the time

 

i wish i could say this was one of those quarantine inspired activities and that i didn't have this planned months before

in a notebook

 

typed up actually i had it typed up

"yeah dad a pandemic isn't normal circumstances so we can't be expected to behave normally during this time"

 

something along those lines
