my hairy armpits

are only there because of my boobs

which grew recently. not

by much, but enough that my self-confidence heaved

itself over the cliff it was dangling from

gangly arms shaking

from exhaustion and staggered

to flat land, flatt butt pott belly and all

where it smiled smugly and decided that it could

have body hair and still be a seven

be a feminist and still be desirable

be carefully careless and still act under the semblance of effortless

abandon. abort

this. you are toxic. you turn your eye to the cliff and the fingers

are all

you see. refrain from plucking those fingers off

like snipping balloons free

only to allow them to shudder under the weight of your carefree carelessness.
