my face

i have acres of pale milky skin, the color of snow in the winter and the moon at night, glowing under the floating deep blue ocean, dotted with stars. the stars are my brown freckles, freckles on my nose that i notice when i cross my eyes, freckles on my arms that i cover with dark sleeves of cotton and warmth. my dark hair falls onto my shoulders in tangles and waves, much like the waves of the sea, and the sea is the home to my eyes, blue as night-unless under the light. tonight i wear a white dress that covers my large chest, the one boys like to say defines me. the one which makes me a “slut”. but how can a girl with tangles of dark hair and stars and freckles and milky white legs be called a “slut”, simply because of her chest?
