Poem: “Most Girls Don’t Do That”

Once it meant climbing trees and grubby knees
And the observation taught you.

Then it meant strong, fast or methodical
And it was praise.

As you grew it meant competent, reasonable
And the praise stung
Though you couldn’t explain
Why.

When dating you learnt
“Most girls don’t do that”
Meant either trying anything once
Or
Knowing what you liked already
And neither was praise
But they shrugged or squirmed
When you asked
“Why?”

But these days when people say
“Most girls don’t do that”
They mostly mean:
The sharp canines on smirking lips
The lightning flashes from fingertips
The sonic booms, conducting tides
The levitation and laser eyes

And most girls don’t
Bother explaining
That actually
Most girls
Do.
