the Oh so visible difference

I will wear the same dress that she is wearing

Worship her idols

eat the same food she eats

talk about the same men

put on the same jewelry  ”because it’s desi”

I will talk like her

follow the customs that she follows because it makes me more

   and get mad at you

for not understanding that she and I come from different places

I come from a place where ”ethnic wear shops” sell copied ideas

which century do you live in?

because ‘Ethnic’ in this century means ‘copy pasted’

it was based on ancestors in the last century

I wonder who is blind

 whether its you who does not see the differences

I do not show

or me

who is blinded by what everyone is busy seeing

whatever it is

I am offended

and I will be until you accept she and I are different
