Spread Thin


I wont sit quietly,

tufted, perched and quaint.

Long thin lady fingers, sip, sip, sip

that society brew. Just a touch of honey please.

Large parts are uncomfortable

for you to look at, all me, all I have

behind these eyes that dare you to say




I made peace with my cake.

I set my fork aside long enough

to feel the shame

of flagrant hip bones poking me in the eye.

Beauty, they say. Woman, they say.

I defy you, taunt you with my curves

as you judge and lust for me together.

I will not sit quietly, sipping this piss in a cup

of all you want me to believe is true.

I have transcended your bones of glamour,

fearlessly embracing the mystique of my true form.

      WELCOME DANDY ~ A very captivating first poem ! Male or Female we should all be happy with the "skin we're in". Alas we are all influenced by fashion (M & F) especially in the Summer and especially on the beach ~ when we expose more than we should. I like to ride horses because they are so big and beautiful they make me look slim ! Thanks for caring and sharing ~ BRIAN
