944 (who?)
sometimes you will fall in love with the hands
or with the jawline, not with the penis.
watch out for boys whose eyes
are rougher than their voices.
little girls love hard and fast, and it is a lie
to say that words will never hurt you.

kissing in the rain is not romantic.
it's cold and wet, and your nipples
will be like pebbles digging into his skin.
he'll wipe water from your lashes,
and, if he is polite, he'll pretend
not to notice his thumb blackened by mascara.
later as he sleeps you will watch his lips,
unable to feel anything except your hair
curled damply against your skin.

when you were young, sex was strange
and scary and unreasonable.
when you grow older, that doesn't change at all.
please, do not use the flavored condoms.

getting married tastes like a wedding
invitation, heavy cardstock and eggplant ink.
if you cut your tongue and bleed
all over the calligraphy, it's bad luck.
when you speak your vows and look in his eyes,
you will still feel the blood
in your mouth, warm and metallic.

maybe you won't want a child, but
it doesn't matter. your body
will change, your heart will change
even faster. you are already pregnant,
mother of all the things you wish you didn't know.
about loving little boys.


in the interest of not leaving anyone out:
maybe someone is willing to write "no one warned the little boys about loving little boys" or "no one warned the little girls about loving little girls" or "no one warned the little child about loving everyone."

I just love this poem. It speaks to me of how life seems to be one step ahead of her, no matter how hard she tries to keep up.

[link] This kind of makes me think of your idea, 'no one warned the little girls about loving little girls.'

This line is pure genius: "watch out for boys whose eyes are rougher than their voices."
