beauty

woman,

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.

remember

that you are both

woman and man

with warrior and Queen 

running and  pumping and

breathing. 

through your veins.
