I’ve heard it all before –

How I’m too tall
For a woman

How my jaw’s too pronounced

My feet are too large

To be feminine

-My haircut makes me look

‘like a Lesbian’.

My tits are small AND saggy

– A double whammy –

My vagina is baggy

Since the kids made their

Appearance, like miracles.

Breast isn’t best

When it comes to aesthetics

They swing low now

No substance since they provided endless sustenance

To two kids

Like two miracles

With darker nipples

Than before, worn-in comforters

Your favourite leather armchair

Soft and supple and loving

A hug in the dark.

I’ve heard it all before

How they fall short

Now they don’t stand up proud and perky,

Now they nuzzle in my armpits involuntarily

Now they look as firm as two souffles left out

On a cold day.

I’ve heard it all before

What they say

But it hurt to hear it

From you.
