Rubens Had It Right

Believe me, I appreciate
your appreciation of my lil-
bit-extra-round-the-middle

As if ads are to be believed
scourge of tough belly fat =
perceived horror of womanhood

Bah! Like the three Graces
let’s circle round & celebrate
the full weight we’ve earned

Forget ever having learned
to berate ourselves & carry
our bad selves on already

Hate don’t look good on nobody
