Beautifully Smug

I don't post poetry on my blog. Do you know why? Because 14-year-old girls post poetry on their blogs, and I am not a 14-year-old girl. (I've had a rather convincing argument made that I'm a 12-year-old girl, but 12 is not 14, so we can ignore that.)

So don't expect me to EVER post ANY poetry here. Ew. What I WILL do for you, is tell you what my poetry professor called me tonight: Plath-esque.

Yes, that's right, he told me I was "Plath-esque." As in Sylvia Plath. As in stuck-her-head-in-an-oven Sylvia Plath. But she's a fabulous poet. So I shouldn't be too worried, right? And besides, he was only responding to a few lines, not to my general demeanor. Also: Sylvia Plath wasn't always dark and deeply depressing; go through her stuff sometime, a lot of it doesn't even touch those yew-paths.

I know I'm justifying. Maybe I'll just stay away from ovens for a while?

You know, my work has never been called anything -esque. I would like to be simply so I could use the letter Q. It is so unloved up there in the corner of my keyboard. Alas, I was Kafka-esque once. But that was just because I woke up one morning and was a dung beetle.

Wait, I post poety on my blog. Is this bad? Should I stop? I mean, I don't want to be a 14 year old girl, so what do I do? I'm so confused.

Boys are allowed to write poetry and post it. I don't know who determined these rules, but it's okay for boys to act like 14-year-old girls. If a girl ever tried, she'd be a pariah (except, of course, to 13-year-old girls, who would worship her).

Societal rules are confusing.
