SEE THE THING IS, he said, BIG GIRLS LEAVE MORE SPACE FOR ME TO GRAB AHOLD OF
i’m not your handlebars
SEE THE THING IS, she said, BIG GIRLS ARE BETTER THAN SKINNY ONES BECAUSE MEN DON’T LIKE BONES
other girls are not graveyards
SEE THE THING IS
a baby girl isn’t beautiful because somebody is gonna hold her
i mean we all wanna be loved but i want her to
a baby girl isn’t beautiful because a man’s fingertips can dig
bruises into her hips, she’s beautiful because
she just is
in nature we don’t say a flower is beautiful
when somebody wants to pick it
in fact we say that nature’s beauty is at the height of purity
when it would destroy you to even touch it
SEE THE THING IS
i would rather be an ocean of danger and deep black and
thick mermaid thighs rather than
a body you want to cruise across
i would rather be the night sky and crush ribs with a suffocating sense that we are all small and purposeless
rather than a landscape of freckles someone happens to think
are akin to constellations
i would rather be storms and lightning and a bright sun rising, i
would rather make you quake in your boots than get your heart
i would rather be beautiful like a cold spring stream:
not beautiful because you said so
but beautiful because
i am me.
I made a mashup of “Whip My Hair” and “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” …
oh mY GOD

Everett had his first round of vaccinations today. It’s so difficult taking him for them! I swear he looked betrayed in like the first millisecond he was jabbed before he realised to cry.. One in each thigh, then I cuddled him tight and kissed his little face. He screamed the place down! I tried to feed him to calm him but no go.. So I sang to him (probably rather frantically because I was upset too, hearing a proper cry from your baby does crazy things) and rocked him until he was calm enough to feed.
I was expecting him to be up all night crying and with a fever, but fingers crossed were ok so far. He was just really clingy to me all evening, wanted to be cuddled to sleep while I stroked his face. My poor little man!
Taking babies for injections is difficult.
