I am not a person who wears brown

Reverb Day 13 
What are you going to shake off with fierceness before you enter the new year? 

Hmmm. There are several things I should, but only one I’m ready for.burstintoflames

 

I am not a person who wears brown.
My hair is not your golden color.
I stumble in heels and my skirts
are printed with ravens, writing desks and calaveras.
I know what all the silverware means,
but I spill on those tablecloths.
My small talk is stilted and odd, I’d rather
ask you questions that makes you gasp.
It has taken too long, but
with certainty I can say–
I am not a person who wears brown
blonde
heels
or uses the shrimp fork
with any regularity.
