02. -flect

but the fact remains that in not stretching myself thin enough
to cast away from your shores i have found vanity
(the irony in that is not lost on me); in five days
you had me traipsing about the apartment in a t-shirt and underwear
like i was a hundred pounds lighter and excess hadn’t written love letters
in pale ripples across my shoulders stomach and thighs
and even more ironic: a man who looked at me without seeing
nearly made me anorexic–
you see me with judgmental fingers and tunnel vision eyes
and i’m beautiful.
