virginia potts, pepper.

you are tough despite all the blonde jokes and the never-ending trial of tony stark
running a company and running in heels 
sometimes you like to joke to yourself that you could rule the world

in a pair of shoes and a dress

and you don't know how to love someone so self-destructive 
you think that once upon a time you could have tried 
but seeing your partners fly into holes into space opening up above new york
is pushing it, even for you 

because you are papers and coffee 
wearing yourself thin because you need people to take you seriously 
you know that people dismiss you despite your power 
and you also know that you are willing to do a lot of things to make them see you 

you will not be an invisible woman 
and you, 
you are smart 

you will not allow anyone to tell you differently.

The End
