My freckles are numerous
Some are dark like delicious chocolate
Some are light like sweet-smelling gingerbread
They’re fun-loving
Sun-loving
Happy, but scared of leaving

My lips are twins
Smooth and squishy
Like plump pieces of rosy pink salt water taffy
Risky geniuses
Loud and shy
Always trying new things

My earlobes are flimsy
Cruel and thin and squishy and selfish and pale
Hate earrings and piercings
But deserve all punishment
Useless slabs of skin
Nothing more

My hair, with many strands
The darkest on my body, changing colors
Care-free spirits, flowing around
Frizzy, crazy, fun
Most unique and special
