Beware the hoardes and masses
who fear the loss of fashion
and pour over glossy pages
in search of this season’s successes.
Strange that someone,
who doesn’t possess a bosom
would strap me into a bodice
and declare it
and kiss me on both cheeks.
by Arabella Strange
I do not tread lightly upon the earth.
I am not a wasp waisted waif,
calibrating fat grams,
and running to the gym to work away guilt.
I have large arms that can cradle a crying baby,
and big legs which can wrap around tightly,
to hold a lover gripped in the ecstasy,
of being alive.
I am Queen Size.
Or, why not pharaoh?
In the tradition of Hatshepsut,
erased from the list of kings,
but even still,
history records me,
I am too substantial
to fade into obscurity.
