Armpit!

Underneath the armpit

this single strand of axillary hair

gives major goals

to the body and soul,

the self is highly

subjective in the meantime.

Underneath the armpit

this single strand of my hair

makes the feeling alive again

in this pretentious surrounding

based on the clichés.

Underneath the armpit

this single strand of my hair

relishes in the sweat

to be judged once

for its length and size.

Underneath the armpit

this single strand of my hair

embarrasses the audience

for its uniqueness,

in the live spectacle

of the evening.

Underneath the armpit

this single strand of my hair

gives goosebumps to people

to misunderstand the gender

with some unanswered questions.

Underneath the armpit

this single strand of my hair

breaks the stereotypes;

physicality is an aspect

of gender

to love body and soul!
