And I said, "Sure, you know, rock it!"
by Francine DuBois
She's wearing her "Destruction Inc." t-shirt
That's two sizes too small to the grocery store again,
And she's plucking grapes off and eating them
Right under the fruit boy's nose. "I like to feel it gush,"
She whispers exaggeratedly, all thirteen years of her life
Oozing forth in what she thinks is feminine wiles.
She's not the kind of girl who says yes loudly in public,
But she's learning.
