Poem - The Measured Size

The poem “The Measured Size” was inspired by the poet’s own discouraging attempts at attaining an equivalence of beauty to smaller sized women.


The Measured Size

Subtractions to the measured size
put to the body in respite
imaginations of what should be
are disproved by verity

searching for worthiness
in mirror’s view of countenance
majorities look across the fence
at verdant spreads they can’t express

those increments of number’s bane
stating size that damns the same
whether the measure's minimal
or double-digit on the frame

each desires reduction’s balm
shifting shapes in full resolve
to meet the image far beyond
reality’s capacity to respond.
