no ugly

one day I looked at myself in the mirror and thought ~ what if there was no ugly?

well then you are fat and old

ok, no fat and no old ~ ha ha!

gross ~ your breasts sag so does your tummy and your chin is hairy

well that may be but there is no gross, no hideous, no misshapen and

no unattractive either

a searching, groping, a casting about

a small space forms, a gap into which other words now tumble…

strong, resilient, enduring

And a feeling too

peace

One thought on “no ugly
