Her stomach hangs loose,
She wants a doctor
to cut her open and button up that belly –
But her husband loves Love handles
and is alright with cellulite.
When she was young,
boys would catcall at her feline kinesics – 17, 18, 19, 20.
She was lepa with a touch of shandy
but her collarbone was obvious,
and her mother said that African men
like something to hold on to,
so she ate her way into
a figure that was not hers, but met a man
who loved that figure.
She hates her drooping-sides
but her husband loves Love Handles
That you should love yourself for yourself regardless, for love comes for us all.
