glimmerless

unexpected intrusions of beauty

sometimes boys tell me they think i’m beautiful
sometimes they mean it

i usually leave the ones that do
they probably have poor judgment
and low self-esteem

i am smart enough to know what i deserve
and i deserve more

that hurt a little to write
which maybe means i did well
you hurt a little to write
which maybe means i did well

belted eyelashes
————-thumbtacked hands
—————————–waterboard hips

adjectives sliding off your body, onto mine
and becoming verbs

belted eyelashes
————-thumbtacked hands
—————————–waterboard hips

sometimes boys tell me they think i’m beautiful
sometimes they don’t mean it

they usually leave me
i have poor judgment
and low self-esteem

they are smart enough to know what they deserve
and they deserve more

which maybe means
i did well
