What Are Big Girls Made Of?

Rating: 4.3
The construction of a woman:
a woman is not made of flesh
of bone and sinew
belly and breasts, elbows and liver and toe.
She is manufactured like a sports sedan.
She is retooled, refitted and redesigned
every decade.
Cecile had been seduction itself in college.
She wriggled through bars like a satin eel,
her hips and ass promising, her mouth pursed
in the dark red lipstick of desire.

When will men grow up enough to accept our bodies as they are?

She is manufactured like a sports sedan. She is retooled, refitted and redesigned every decade. Cecile had been seduction itself in college. She wriggled through bars like a satin eel, lot of thinking and imagination. tony

Such an honest and truthful piece of poetry. And poetry it is. Speaking from my own experience outer beauty doesn't last. A lot can happen to a woman in a lifetime and sometime are inner battles scars start to appear on the outside. This poem is so perfectly worded. The poet knows of what she writes!

I have to say it. Marge, Marge, Marge! Your poems are such pieces of art! You paint with words in a way in which the rest of us just fantasize! ! ! And, whether it is a spark of holiness, a smirk of bawdiness, or a shard of sorrow, always the meaning goes straight to the heart. Jane LaLone
