only girl

she's wearing a polka-dotted swimsuit
plastic pants
pink tights
a purple shirt
and a Santa Claus hat

she goes from laughing hysterically
to sobbing in the corner, humiliated
over something none of us remember

and though we try to hide it
the world revolves around her
lash-fringed eyes and pouty pink lips

oh baby, how did you get to be the queen?
