all a-twitter

if pressed
i’d say
it’s like a snapshot
constantly updating and evolving
but always the same
it’s girls waiting for boys
to change
boys waiting for girls
to change
the fact that they’ve been hurt
by girls
who claim to be lonely
blind to why
and i say nothing
they could stand
to be a little lonely
it’s girls beating themselves up
for what they ate
or when
or why
i get mad
and fight not to say something
cause any man knows
any real man knows
a little cellulite
makes your butt sing in jeans
and maybe i should
but i don’t
because good intentions
because eyes see
and heads hear
in the languages
they always have
and eyes see
and heads hear
what they want
be supported
not challenged
and so
it goes
