Vasant (Spring) 2020 Poems - Kathrine Yets


My Body

By Kathrine Yets


My mauve shawl
wraps my body like a huge python,
winding round and round.
I hide my breasts, my thighs.
The bulges and beauty
sriracha hot but better to be
heard and not seen.
I can talk about my pride
but cannot show
my supple and sultry skin.
Dare I wear
that tight leopard blouse
with the v-neck?
Always yes.
