For Frida, Virginia and you

For her who sits within large rooms of unexplained noises.
For her who stares with lasting urgency.
For her who tirelessly feels superior yet, seeks consolation.
For her who never not intends simplicity.
For her who judges unprovoked.
For her who is spontaneously condescending,
To the immortal god man of social stereotyping.
