hey i'm Virginia Kane i'm a poet  and today i'll be sharing my piece   i'm still not sure if i wanted to be those  girls or if i wanted to be in love with them   i wrote this piece because i'm always interested  in the dynamic between admiration and attraction   and all the different emotions that feed into  those and off of each other and so this is my   retrospective interrogation of a time  in my life when i was grappling with   that whirlwind of feelings and trying to  figure out what the implications of them were
