— THIGHS —



Heavily dimpled, a block of cottage cheese

Fine silver and white thread branching across my surface

Old scars and closed wounds marking all those times razor frantically hit skin

Rippling layers with every step

Maybe this is why I wear those Old Navy “Super Skinny” jeans,


In hopes of


Smoothing out the dimples

Suffocating the silver threads

Covering up the scars

And compressing the ripples

As if none of them exist.


Because in what world would anyone ever find any of that desirable?

So for now

Walking around with denim blue legs

Will have to

Suffice.
