Kim arrives from high school in Texas . Curls dangle
Over a tied top and the exact blue double-knit pants
That show the shape she wants. Most are too small
Or two skinny here, and that means it is bound to
Feed on itself until, ten years hence, our women
May become unappetizing. Still, the go-go glasses
Are dark framed hipster ovals that draw you in.
Weight or no weight, nose or no nose, smile or
No smile. Then he speaks, “when I’m
In a relationship I am much more masculine.
We have four men in our house, and I haven’t
Had sex with any of them, but there are
Never any women at the house so we have
To express both sides. We’re more in touch
With our feminine side.” Kim elbows her friend
As she moves in on this guy, who is explaining
So much. “But is this the truth? Or are you just
Saying this as part of our conversation?” Which
Proves that we are in a college town. Then Kim
Utters flirts, and flings herself at him. Go Heels.
