i have short fingers
i have short, bitten nails,
i have wide wide hips and a white, bumpy tummy too.
my breasts are too large and my eyes are too small,
and my arms are reminiscent of sausages.
But I will paint these nails periwinkle, and use the short fingers to write and to touch, and to love --
i will use my whole body to love,
and to get love in return. And when i see it with my
too-small blue eyes, i and only
i will remember the map tattooed on my skin....
