Oh Oh!






curses
the raised eyebrow
I await her judgment
she says my dress shows too much skin
face makeup is way too bold for my age
what does she know I implore you
I am sixteen years old
I know it all
curses

  4. Ha ha, 16-year-olds know everything. It is not until a few years later that they recognize what they do NOT know. Smiles.

  5. Those eyes certainly could be interpreted as a little defensive/hopeful in the mixed assertiveness of teens. Very neat voice for your poem. "Curses" Ha!

    I think we've all been this teenager and/or had to deal with her. This was very cleverly done, Helen!

  11. LOL! You took me right back to those teen years when my girls knew everything and I was suddenly rather dim. Thank goodness they outgrew that stage! Terrific write.
