Someone Else's Skin - Poem by abi Whitaker

would i be pretty
if i was skinnier
would i be pretty
if i was tanned
would i be pretty
in someone else's skin
would i be pretty
with someone else's eyes
to somebody else
am i pretty
no, no, no, no, no
ugly, ugly
i wash my hands of my skin
i'd be prettier in someone else's
someone else's skin
who isn't me
then maybe i'd be pretty
would i be pretty
