For good girls

For the Good Girls

This is not an ode to red dresses, missed

periods or bad boys.

Not about running away or filthy streets

or puking your guts out.

No, this is for good girls      who

learned to share the first time     who

waited with folded hands for seconds     who

never earned more than three Hail Mary’s.

This is for good girls      who

practiced saying no in bathroom mirrors       who

dreamed of yes when July stirred bedroom curtains      who

stayed in the gym and danced all night long.
