something about the word woman
is too sexual for me

I am a king girl instead

I can drink a whole thing of dr. pepper
and hate it but I love the way
dr. pepper sounds so I do it anyway

I'm a king
and I do ornamental things

I sparkle like an expanse of sand

ten thousand years from now
someone will find the way I pronounce syrup
preserved in amber
and that person will want to eat it
because it just looks so good

I recommend selling it instead

I'm wearing a bow
and I have dr. pepper flavored lip gloss
from the eighth grade
I wonder

I wonder how a girl's self-esteem ever
reaches equilibrium without
roughly equal numbers of people telling her
that she's a genius/idiot

I recommend selling everything
