candied pussy fights like a girl.
this girl is someone you know. she is the ghost of girlhood, the sister you wanted to protect. she’s the friend who stays up late with you, whispering secrets from across the room. she’s the voice that rises from among pillows and blankets and turns to water on your cheeks long after you’ve fallen asleep.
she tells the truth and nothing else. sometimes you hate her, but to do that is to hate yourself.
