Portrait Part 1: Flaws

Duck feet, square hands.

Jelly roll around the waist.

Board butt on thunder thighs

looks as though she dressed in haste

 

Pocked face, apple-shaped

lips too thin to pencil in

bulbous nose, lopsided ears

one hair growing on my chin

 

Once long hair now falling out

dyed to hide the graying crew

knees that sound like breaking twigs

Feeling older than I knew.
