Boys & Girls

ISSUE:  Fall 2022


Sometimes when I get
My period,
I wake up & my bed 
Is a massacre.
It looks like I played 
A game of hunter & prey
All night long.
& I did. 
What are little girls for?
My brother was a king
In a cereal-box crown. 

This is what 
Little girls are for. 

Patriarchy thrives inside me.

If an elephant is tied 
With a rope as a baby, 
You can tie it with 
Thread as an adult
& it won’t go anywhere.
