to feed the thirsty virginities
that open up
beneath your womb. . .

Then she said, "You don't like wearing skirts?! What kind of girl are you?!" Again, I wanted to say, "I am a boy and boys don't wear skirts," but I ended up saying, "One who doesn't like skirts." The three of us ended up being gone a lot longer than anticipated. Why? Katie insisted on takin
