1. I.
    five sets of two hands, fingers spread wide
    my best friend lying next to me squeaks out
    “never have I ever masturbated”
    a chortle and a shrug between the boys as they flick down their obligatory fingers
    and I can’t help but feel a twinge in my stomach as my pinky follows suit
    the silence in the room is thick and grey and suddenly sliced by
    yes really.
    have you ever experienced fun?

    I pull away a hair caught in my scarlet lipstick
    in my reflection I see my table mate from english class
    behind me she blinks twice and scoffs
    “who are you trying to impress?”
    the bathroom door is closed behind her before I can ask
    the last time she did something to impress herself.

    before a trip to the mall
    one of my friends spends two hours
    perfecting her bronzer
    and choosing the perfect pair of shoes
    the other rubs in dry shampoo
    and is out the door in less than five minutes
    they are two of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen.

    my father calls me beautiful through a mouthful of popcorn
    as I pour a glass of milk to accompany my now third piece of leftover birthday cake
    he plants a kiss on my cheek and I grin as I wipe it away.

    she asks me what to do to start loving herself
    and I send her away to my full length mirror
    and demand to only speak to her
    when she’s found something to adore
    the way I did with my knobby knees
    and tiger-striped hips
    and big square teeth
    fifteen minutes go by
    and she finally points to the freckles on her nose
    splits into a grin
    the one that makes everyone weak in the knees
    and I watch the lightbulb go off above her head
    as she realizes
    it’s never been her job to hate her body

    i tell my sister she looks cute today
    and the look on her boyfriend’s face
    when she blurts out “damn right I do!”
    is priceless.

    I used to worry that I’d never find someone who loved me at all
    and now my biggest fear
    is finding someone who can adore me as much as I’ve come to.

    seven thoughts on self love that came to me before I got my driver’s license (llb)
