School Girls

School Girls

Sometimes I wish I had your cynicism

And could laugh at everyone with you and the girls.

I put on my bitchest face and pretend to hate

Everything with a pulse,

But my jokes aren’t heard and my comments seem ignorant,

Because I don’t read underground publications,

About feminist injustice, or cultural appropriation.

Because I go to yoga to de-stress and allow a white woman

To prance around saying “Namaste.”

Because I am one of the jokes you girls tell.

I hate these school girls as they make me feel insensitive

And far too passive.

They make me feel ignorant and without an opinion.

But still I sit by them and they say hi to me

And I pretend for a moment that our worlds are the same,

But I only realize this is a lie when I return home.
