My most favourite thing
Is when they still have long hair
And dress like guys do now
Not super baggy pants
But not form fitting either

And you take them to bed,
Or, knowing stems,
They take you to bed.
And all that manliness
About them is still
Just barely there,
In the slope of their shoulders
And the way their hands touch you

But then they get undressed
And it’s the most beautiful
Combination
Of boy and girl.
They’re so fresh and confident
But not cocky

They’re respectful and talented
And it’s like they try to only
Show the manly side

But then you get into bed
And it’s like unwrapping
A present
That only gets better
Every time you unwrap it

A little piece of their femininity
Uncovered just for you,
In that moment only.
