three days from now,
they'll scream sweet sixteen
at me,

thinking pink and life
will merge for me
ladylikeness

i stumble
unelegantly into the next age
fifteen is the skin
i want to be stuck in

i dont need no other
way of life
i found myself here
my muse agrees too

so even though i'll age
into increasing numbers
year by year
in the real world,
my muse and i
have sworn to remain

fifteen forever.
