Nobody told me

 

that pinching pimples will leave scars

that tampons hurt

that I can squirt

that hair grows in my arse

 

that when I get my period I’ll also get the shits

that boobs change size

that so do my thighs

that fanny farts exist!

 

that the hair I shave off will come back quick

and to make it worse – twice as thick

 

that my vagina won’t look like those on TV

I’ll have to pick out my in-growns while I wait for my tea

 

that I won’t look in the mirror

without spinning side to side

and I’ll try to suck in my belly

or spread my shoulders wide

 

that I’ll sag and I’ll shed and there isn’t a manual

that orgasms from sex are barely annual

 

that my body will bloat and shrink

like seasons: month by month

that for so long

I’ll think - what’s wrong?

 

it’s just me

I’m a freak

 

nobody told me

that they felt it too

 

that they’re also inside an alien vessel

with oddities

absurdities

and monsters to wrestle

 

that really, there’s tonnes of us

a whole UFO fleet

 

of hairy nipples

and ones that dribble

 

of mono - tits

and sweaty pits

 

of stretch marks

of birth marks

and bingo wings too

 

thigh closes not gaps

and gi-gan-tic flaps!

 

nobody told me

 

that when I’ll bleed I will feast

 

that when I pee there’ll be yeast

 

that when I fuck it will sting

 

and that bum fluff’s a thing

 

nobody told me how to navigate

nobody told me

that it’s impossible to tell anyone else how to navigate

around their body

to not care about weight

to stop waiting for someone’s else’s approval

to approve myself. and my muffins tops too

that life’s too short to not enjoy a fully naked screw

 

nobody ever told me

so I’m telling you
