plain jayne

girls like you can’t be too picky
this guy says to me one night
what do you mean
“girls like me”?
i ask him
rather suspiciously
as discomfort
grips my heart so tight
you know, he said
plain girls, like you
with prospects
that really aren’t that great
now let me get this straight
i say
you call me plain two minutes
after you ask me for a date?
well you turned me down
he said
i’ve got to honestly relate
my feelings about being
shot down by your
obvious man-hate
i stare at him
in disbelief
that he could be so forward
and so brutally cold
i know that’s not
what the rest of the world sees
but his words hurt my heart
anyway
as i rise to walk away
he grabs my arm to stop me
simply stares as i turn and say
with all the grace and aplomb i can muster,
why don’t you kiss my ass?
a guy like you would probably think
it’s even plainer than my face!

Artist's Description

a couple months after i ended an intense and life changing relationship, when i was in no shape or mood for new romance, this guy offers up this opinion after i turn him down…..i have never forgotten how it felt to be judged so unfairly….
