Thigh Gap

When you're 14, you wear a hole in the knee of your favorite jeans,
and it looks cooler that way sometimes,
but sometimes you just want a pair of perfect jeans.
You don't have the money for new jeans, though,
so you play with the frayed threads that span the hole
until they break.

When you're 41, you wear a hole in the inner thigh of your favorite jeans,
with the friction of your thighs touching as you walk,
and you're disappointed in your body, as usual,
and you wonder if other women are similarly plagued.
You can afford new jeans,
but for $60 a pair (on clearance now for $39.99!),
you feel like they could be made more durable.
