    Flags of skin hung from her arms,
    cellulite hail damage covered her legs,
    her lower stomach protruded, unpregnant,
    and her breasts hung like runny eggs.

    She had more chins than China,
    bifocal frog glass tipped her nose,
    her bush had sprouted gray hairs,
    she wears control top panty hose.

    The curve at her waist was gone,
    just as the dimples on her knee,
    but she’s still fine in my eyes
    because she looks a lot like me.

    I was thinking about how we are so critical of others without ever noticing that we aren't so perfect--every now and then I see myself in the mirror and I wonder, how in the hell any woman ever went out with me--I always thought I was cute, but sometimes, we actually see the real me and are surprised that we don't look a thing like we thought--still, I am thankful to all those women who had mercy on me and threw a dog a bone--Ra

    hey poet I really dig this
    I am myself in constant amayzment at why beautifull women or any woman for that matter wants to be with us crusty men. but mamma said don't never look a gift horse in the mouth so I will simply thank God that they do, or at least some do, I think -well they say they do, when I $$pay$$ them (lol)

    I seemed to have to disagree with ya' to some degree. But even so, I can relate cuz I was never that pretty boy. So, I too would like to say thanks to the women of the world who broke me in, regardless of that fact. Aging and Ugliness is too different things, ya' know?

    I'm appreciating this vibe, Ra. I told somebody recently, that the "eyes of love are kind"... especially if we've been with someone for many years. In many cases, there is a tendency for us to "see" that person's ageless soul through loving eyes. But I'm also hearing you on this other tip. There are many things about ourselves we can't get too puffed up about ~ when we consider the "gifts" and "fruits" from another that we were fortunate enough to receive and enjoy, in times past. :)

    Love the way you bring it, Ra. Keep it up.
