Feminist Decrees

Underneath my nervous bravado

I refuse to wear a chastity belt on my love

Accompanied by the red feather boa hanging from my bedpost

I refuse to live in the past

In the midst of the flirtatious double entendres

I refuse to be the harvester of regrets

Intertwined with my feminist decrees

I refuse to remember him in kind

Along with the scented candles I burn

I refuse to censor my emotions

La pinche sociedad be damned

I refuse to be afraid of life
