Catch Some Wide Eye

Something Pretty

he hands me the money
my money, hard earned
sweaty money. the last of it all.
money stamped and designated for food
food stamped money.
he hands it to me and grins.
“be sure and buy yourself something pretty”
he says, all in good manners.
girls should like pretty things.
shouldn’t they?

    haha. The speaker of this poem is a girl. Yes. The speakers of many of my poems are male. As to what I am, it is still up in the air, now, isn’t it? 😀

  3. deja vu. people always form that women work for pocket money and santa clause buys the necessary things for them.
