Wildflowers Don't Exist (#Wattys2017)
"You don't know what it's like to be my size!" I yelled at Naomi.
"Me? I wish I could be your size!"
"No one wants to be me, no one dreams of being plus sized!"
"You dont think it's hard being skinny? I WISH I could gain weight!"
I sucked my teeth. Fetishing my weight is not real. Being overweight is dehumanizing. I disgust people. No one wishes to be big. Dreams aren't for real. Thin is in, always have been. Always will be.
One more thing.
Wildflowers don't exist.
