It takes some time, girl,

for you to become

a person.


At first you’re just hair and hips

swinging around.

At first you’re just smile and lipstick

and perfume and

your silhouette.


Then you speak

and you’re smart

and your ideas take over the room.

Then you’re compassionate

and you’re wise.

Then you’re the friend, the funny,

not just the blonde

the girl

the hottie



Once your magnificent soul

spreads out into the world

you become a person

and you can never go back

to what you used to be.


It is uncanny that

your existence incarnates

when they get to transcend

the sight of your flesh.


A person’s existence

lies way beyond

what can be seen.
