once i had a boil on my butt
and i went to the doctor. She told me
just to keep it clean and it will go away.
that was about a year ago now.
Now i get boils on my butt and in between my legs.
It is so annoying. It hurts when I sit down
and thats all we do in High School.
I am obese and my mother says
its because my legs are rubbing together.
She is probably right.
I am trying hard to lose weight
but these boils are getting in the way.
it is getting out of hand. Oh yeah, and
for some reason, which i don’t know, all these boils
are leaving purple marks and not small ones.
I just need some help with this.
Is this a huge problem?

I mean I actually have to
send him a link
to the thing I want.
I mean I would almost
rather him not buy anything for me…
because he just goes
and buys me something
really SHIT. And he’s started being
really funny about it, like now
he buys me something
and says I probably won’t like it
even before I unwrap it. And I
just said to him that it’s better for me
to SAY I don’t like it and take it back,
than to pretend. And
I must have mentioned like
twice a day that I want
some stacking rings. But he
sees that as like an engagement ring,
like I’d MARRY him
for Christ’s sake. I mean if I want
to find out what HE wants
I would ask his friends.
Why doesn’t he do that? Oh, and then
he goes online to Sophie
to ask what I want
and she tells him that I want
some black jeans and this poster
I linked to on Facebook, and he
just didn’t pay ANY ATTENTION to her…
Yes but I shouldn’t have to say
what I want.

Gradually men rise up to confront them.
One of the bravest is
a teenage hairdresser’s apprentice.
Vidal Sassoon, the man who gave us
the Five Point Cut, the Asymmetric Bob
and Mia Farrow’s £2,500 haircut
was a street-fighting man.
“That popinjay Mosley.
Fascists preaching hate on every corner.
The same abuse that I remembered
from the 1930s,
I was too young to do anything about it.
The pictures we were seeing
from Auschwitz and Buchenwald and Dachau
changed the shape of our rage.
I went to work at the salon in Mayfair
with a badly scratched face
and this refined client said
Good God, Vidal, you look terrible.
What happened to you?
Nothing much, I said. I just fell over a hairpin.”
