“A Gadfly Expression Of Love For My 51st Birthday” by Tami Boehle-Satterfield

gadfly

Soft belly.
Blubbery.
Muffin top.
Mocking me
“Shameful, clumsy cow!”
An utter sob.
An utter slob.
Casting me
Fat and old.

And still,
My body
Looking
Out for me,
Working hard for me.
Stretching cells,
Making space
In small rooms
Stockpiling estrogen.
