beautiful girl

after Sara Bareilles

twirl, twirl, twirl,
how long have you been

twirling, twirling, twirling?
you’re a top. their words
make your self-worth spin,

“fat arms,
fat tummy,
fat fingers.

you don’t drink,
how come you have
beer belly?”

a cocoon you built
around yourself,
beautiful girl.

don’t trade your
for their starved hips,
beautiful girl.

they’re blinded by your
wings, glittered, come,
you, oh you,

beautiful girl.
