slurs

I should have known when you asked for my slurs
hoping that I would gift you ammunition
as  payment
proof
that I was lower than you.

You still found others
using ignorance as your shield.
You never found spic,
but dyke was easy,
tangible.

That’s how I knew you said it before,
how it was common to your lips
as they were to my skin.
