femininity— 
i used to think it was only for girly-girls
the fluorescent pink lip gloss
the “cute” multicoloured tubs of varnish
the unevenly cut drab of clothing;
supposedly a fashion statement 

i used to scoff silently at
girls chattering about makeup
what i declared at twelve
“the most useless thing in the planet”

i once kicked a ball called “feminine” 
far, far away
not bothering to look where it landed
it could’ve even sailed past the fence for all i knew

now 
i am in the process of
searching
retrieving the dust-laden ball
from under the bleachers
and one day i hope
i will be sitting on that football field
juggling it on the tips of my studded shoes
slowly embracing 
tap-tap-tapping into its power
elegance
empathy
compassion
and with a final kick
send it into the goal that is
self-acceptance
#escapril day 10. Prompt: "femininity".
