You Are

July 31, 2010
By , Leipsic, OH
Curve of the waist,
not enough,
“You're beautiful.”
Fingertips stroke pallid skin,
riding the contour,
as a small hill
over my stomach,
a small hill,
“I placed it there.”
Wet hair twists and flips,
in all the wrong places,
around a face,
with too much cheek,
and a nose that could cut,
Legs not long enough,
knees abstract-strange!
“A work of art.”
Why can't I be beautiful?
“You Are!”
