Guilty by association

All the places we'll go.
Twelve years old.
Her body begins to blossom.
Beautiful red droplets on her bed.
She hides under her covers and begins to explore.
For her this is natural.
It is comforting.
It is relaxing.
These are the things little girls do.
Something happens.
Something changes.
Her body is now cold and stale.
Filled with shame.
Naturally guilty.
Or guilty by association. Female. Women. Girl.
