Posts Tagged ‘to be a woman’

Who told you
that we need long hair
lashes or nails
rosy pink cheeks
and hidden pores
to be a woman?

As a girlWho told you that you needed to shave?
I rushed to grow up
to be a woman
what I thought it was to be

sneaking eyeliner to school
cutting myself¬†with mom’s razor
plucking, curling, crimping

that I needed color palates
pinks and purples
lotions and potions
creamy and pungent

to be a woman?

Who told me
that I had to shave?
