read the fine print, darling.

 

because didn't i warn you, it would be like this?
 

didn't you know

 

that when i said you'd belong in a workplace

 

i meant as a tool to be played with?

 

didn't you know

 

when i talked to you of marriage

 

that i meant you had up to twenty-three years old to wed yourself away

 

to a man who's face looks good on a postcard?
 

didn't you know

 

from the moment i had you

 

that children would be expected out of you

 

(but not a minute before your wedding day, where your legs could spread)?

 

didn't you know

 

that handprints on your hips and your thighs and your legs andyoureverywhere

 

is a part of the experience of being a lady

 

so don't make such a fuss about it, will you?

 

didn't you read the fine print

 

and know that since the day you were born

 

you were assigned an object, and nothing more?

 

didn't you know

 

that once you're past your prime

 

you're going to have some daughters

 

and raise them to be just like you?
