with breasts that you measure in “cups” and letters
and you can’t even
remember the size,
and all you know is how they perk or drop in the mirror
with stretch marks across your thighs that look like you’ve gone to war with lions and
you have won.
that you are both
woman and man
with warrior and Queen
running and pumping and
through your veins.
