repeat repeat

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....
