Body, Mine by Charl Landsberg

Charl Landsberg | May 14th, 2015 | a poem a day challenge, poetry | No Comments


remind me how I’m not the same
pack my body full of shame
it’s easy when I’m timid, mild
play out your hate on the fat child
and you’re a nine, a ten maybe
and i’m a two if I’m lucky
a fun game when you’re over five
if less, a struggle to survive
