I climb trees
play basketball and hurt people with sharp elbows.
play ultimate Frisbee and get dirty.
rip my pants and get burrs in my hair
I do it all with a big smile on my face.
I used to wear dresses.
I didnít wear a dress again until high school, prom.
I came to college as far away from home as I could
to become a corporate, successful, independent girl.
Because goodness knows Iím not a woman.
I yawn in public
I donít cover my mouth.
I donít cross my legs like a lady.
Sometimes I get funny looks at 8am because
I do not wear stilettos
or dark mascara
I walk barefoot on the sidewalk
say what I mean when I mean it
donít depend on that other sex
when I can take them to the hoop
or break them inside out
we could fight about it
But you probably wouldnít hit a girl.
