Take the girl
Strip her naked
Throw her into the world
And pronounce her as woman

Make her as vulnerable as an open wound
Shape her and mold her like clay
Stretch both arms each way
Try to line her with dignity and grace
Watch in displeasure the roll of her eyes

Cake her face with the powders of an Indian sun
Dye her hair with the colors of a mountain rock
Curl and tweeze
Cut and break
Slap a smile blanketing her tender face

Watch her shed each artificial speck of color on each lip and cheek
Envy her as she screams of freedom
Despise each curled lip
Despair in each cocky laugh
Yes, you turn your head in disgust

You know she shed her false identity
That you so nonchalantly had thrown into her soul
You see this girl
Once created so vulnerable by you
No matter how disgraceful
Her deception is bittersweet
Don't bother to tame
Watch and envy
The beautiful sinner
