Sun Love

Too many girls

With skin

This specific shade

Of

Sun-loved

Learn their lessons

Early

In the womb.

 

Learn too early

To contort themselves.

Lower voices.

Shrink.

Into

Someone else’s acceptable.

Learn virtues

From grandmothers

They have never seen.

Learn humility.Learn grace.

Perhaps that

Is

Why we grow afraid

Of the fire in our hearts

Or

Between our legs.

Perhaps that

Is

Why we can only love closeted.
