bossom
belly
thighs
and hips
the nourishing flesh of women
protruding soft girth and giving,
behind lace
and bows
behind mismatched colors
and misshapen shirts
behind soiled aprons
and unknown faces,
it is not pretty
but it is beautiful

behind and within
August 2016

inspired by the photographic posters of Susan ____, of Guatemalan village day laborers. StudioPause's writing pause group.
