Nag a bit more about
the nest on my head,
the baggy fit of my tee,
the scuffs and mysterious
blue stain on my white sneaks

Bother me some about
the polite way to offer an
insightful opinion or,
better yet,
the perfectly proper closed mouth

Offer your incredibly poised justification as to how
the obsequious nature of girlishness,
so called Southern Charm,
is distinguished from servitude

This book, this pocket guide
on being a lady
is useless to me

I’m a woman

No less than those
righteously prim mannequins
painfully described on pages
that make better kindling than content 

That’s just my unruly opinion

Does this come with a gift receipt?
