By Katie Suleski
little boys pick on little girls
big boys, to little girls
take things too far
“boys will be boys” the teachers
say, but when Susan’s skirt is too short
the teacher wags his finger
and she is sent home.
but big girls wear short skirts
for big boys in hopes they will get picked on
and marry big boys
because their touches, even the hard ones,
the ones that hurt,
mean that they love them.
or so we tell girls.
