Sherry

Chubby girls don’t get promoted, so Sherry eats yogurt, when she eats. She wears tight shirts (her abs are still good!). She wears loose pants (her thighs).

Pretty girls don’t ride the subway, so Sherry spends lunch money on taxi rides. Sometimes she’ll take a taxi two or three blocks. They’re so easy to catch.

Nice girls don’t put that there, so Sherry keeps her hands under her pillow, even when it’s lonely and dark and he is so, so far away.

When she stops needing tampons, a couple months later, she’s glad. Her body understands, finally. It wants to help.
