I will never have thighs
men dream around their neck,
nor will I ever have full lips
the way women do,
and my eyes will always
show more anger than anything,
because I’ll always look too much like
my father and he was prone to leaving,
and since he never learned to love
I never learned to be loved,
and him and I both walk away
from good things too often.
