girl to woman, where does it begin?

how can we know which phase we are in?


in a woman, wisdom, in a girl, curiosity.

but in both, strength is a shared quality.


i find in myself in each new moment, 

ability to be this charming and devious showman.


this act of power and control,

is something new and difficult to enroll.
