that kind

7 Nov

but also because it was

like they were constantly

daring me to react,

to tattle,

to flip out,

and because

i was so desperate

to impress them

tough-girl act

fit in,

be taken seriously

like they were so elite


that i reacted

like i was constantly being dared,

kid grandeur,





boldness of their


was daring,

but not in a good way,

just in a way

like you can’t believe what they


tried to get away with,

got away with.

like that kind of dare.
