The Child-Free Girly-Girl (Who Knew They Existed?)

I like long-stemmed purple wildflowers

and weaving braids into my hair,

wearing long skirts that bounce at my ankles when I walk

and smearing apricot seeds on my skin

in the morning.

I like movies about love,

watching kittens bat at butterflies,

and sucking a smooth mound of chocolate ice cream

from a cold spoon.

I like pink

(in the proper context)

and rounded raindrops  on red leaves.

I like men in thick sweaters on cold winter mornings,

and I like them in suits and uniforms and hats.

I like them in jeans and in nothing at all,

but I’ll never want to have their baby.
