behave

The good girl in me

wants to throw paint at the walls

the rented walls

of boring someone-else’s-house

the good girl in me is tired of renting

the good girl in me wants to

bust through, smash through plaster and boredom

and she wants a space bigger

than the closet given to her

where she is supposed to make

everything, all her dreams, happen

where men tell her

well, if you really were an artist

you could create anywhere

the good girl in me wants to

punch them in the mouth

tell them to go fuck themselves

fuck off and stop giving her leftover rooms

motherfuckers

The good girl in me is one bitter bitch

(underneath layers and layers of good girl covers,

quilted for her, with love,

by good girl mothers)
