Portrait of a Woman I


She's the kind of woman
who'd be called a girl
if she's noticed at all

No makeup no skirts
when she was twelve
they called her tomboy
Her mother always wanted
to see her in a dress

Her girlfriends now forever
trying to fix her
up with their boyfriends' friends
all amid speculation
she's   you know   different

she doesn't even
think she's fat
