"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

girls like us

we fold our frames into fours,

unsure of how to hold ourselves in

the right lighting.

Try to kneed our stomachs like dough,

our fists clenched and reddened

our knuckles cry

in cardinal scream.

silent tongued, we scream from the

ink of a pen

brushing the pages of lined paper with

worthless words.

Girls like us

we stare out windows searching for

shooting stars to wish upon,

a siren call.

Girls like us

we burn bright

from the fire burning in our lungs.
