The Princess and the Pea Philosophy

I cannot remember

how we became faithless

and how we found out santa claus

was a costumed fat guy with a makeshift beard

that we only see faeries in little girl cartoon shows

and why do we make our daughters pigtailed fantasy whores

only to have crystal snowy paperweights break in their adolescence

that we do not wait for Prince Charming, but we find kings

nor are we damsels in distress no more but femme fatales,  lest we are drama queens

that our wicked stepmothers are only us and teenage rebel angst

that there are no lost princesses, only lost goals and dreams

and we want to tell the world

that there’s nothing to believe in

but love
